Wanna Come Meet Me?

Sharon February 27th, 2009

I’m going to be giving two talks in the coming weeks that I thought I’d let you know about.  The first is in Tucson, AZ, where I’ll be next week at the PAG Sustainability and Energy Fair on March 6-7.  There’s info here.  I’ll be appearing on the Sustainable Lifestyles panel from 2pm-3:15 on Saturday, and signing books at some point also.  I don’t normally range so far from home (another obligation brought me out that way) so this is a rare chance for me to cross the country and meet new people!

The second will be back here in Albany, where I’ll be part of the speakers series at the New York State Museum.  It looks to be a remarkable lecture series, and I strongly recommend not just my own (which I only hope will be remarkable ;-) ), but Dr. Smith’s and Gowdy’s lectures as well.    I’ll be speaking on “Why You Should Think About Peak Oil, Climate Change, and Economic Collapse When It Seems Much Nicer Not To.” on Wednesday, March 18 at 7pm.  But I’ll definitely be attending as many of the talks in the series as I can – I’m particularly looking forward to next Wednesday’s ““The Global Predicament: Increasing Consumption, Decreasing Abundance of Resources.” by Dr. Taury Smith – I’ll be there, and I hope my local readers will be too.

    I get to meet Sharon, I get to meet Sharon. Neener, neener, neener. LOL!

    And Sharon benefits, too. I’m saving her some grapefruit and tangerines on my trees. :)

    And there’s a rainwater harvesting class that day too!! That’s my nemesis now; I really really really feel a huge pressure to make the garden self supporting from a water standpoint…the water rationing in place in other local areas here worries me that if they institute it for us, I’ll need it.

    Damn, Sharon, I thought this was going to be another post about the DC coal plant protest.

    I’ll wait til you stop in MSP on your way to the west coast by train, someday.

    I don’t think I’ve any hope of ever meeting any of you lot. It’s just too far away = like on another planet or something. Have some fun for me :)

    Susan, you’re in Tucson? If you email Sharon, maybe you can ask her to forward your email to me!

    Hi Rosa – You know, I tried to work it so I could go to Washington first, but I’d contracted to be in Tuscon on the 5th, and there was no logistical way to do it, even if Eric wouldn’t have left me for abandoning him for so long.

    I also feel like as important as the work of demonstrating is – and as much as I sort of miss my days of getting arrested, the only hope of dealing with coal is teaching people not to require so much electricity – we’re not going to replace it rapidly with renewables and nuclear. So I do my little part here, as much as I’d rather be there.
