For the next three days I’ll be attending a conference that will look into the future of the United States energy supply and ways any energy shortfalls could be mitigated. My preferred solution is for people to continue to revitalize and repopulate walkable neighborhoods like those found across the five boroughs and in Jersey City, Newark, Hoboken, Stamford, Bridgeport, New Haven, and the list could go on and on. Basically, any place that developed before the advent of the automobile. I’ll let you know if my thoughts change significantly after attending this conference.
I’ll be liveblogging the conference at The Oil Drum. The blogosphere’s own Aaron Naparstek is moderating a panel called Energy Efficient Transportation. I’m sure that will be a high point. Shortly after Naparstek’s panel, we can expect a depressing view from Matt Savinar, publisher of Life After the Oil Crash.
As a prelude to the conference, the editors of The Oil Drum have issued a press release calling attention to the fact that in the future, oil and natural gas may not be as abundant as we have come to expect them to be.
