Confronting Peak Oil: Building a Sustainable Future

As we approach the end of the age of oil, and the reality of the climate
crisis sinks in, more and more people are beginning to wake up to the fact
that we need to change our ways, and begin building sustainable energy
alternatives.  We'll spend the day exploring those alternatives - people and

footprint, a national agenda for addressing the crisis, and local
initiatives in the Portland area.

Per Fagereng interviewed Raed Jarrar about the new Bush-Malaki agreement and more.  Jarrar, who was born and raised in Iraq, is Iraq consultant for the American Friends Service Committee.
