18.04.07 - Energy Beyond Oil evening in Pontypridd

Post by darren »

"Energy Beyond Oil"

6.45pm to 9pm,
Wednesday 18th April
Clwb y Bont,
85a Taff Street
Pontypridd
(in the centre of Pontypridd)


By invitation of Rhondda Cynon Taff Green Drinks

Paul Mobbs author of the new book 'Energy Beyond Oil', will present a
short lecture and discussion on the issue of our energy future:
* Why are fuel prices rising?
* How much energy do we use?
* What's 'peak oil' and what does it mean for us?
* How much oil and gas is left?
* Can renewable energy make a difference?

Using the most recent statistics from national and international
organisations 'Energy Beyond Oil' explores the entire energy issue --
how it is used, how much there is, and how current trends make higher
energy prices/energy shortages inevitable. However, in the longer term
our use of fossil fuel-based energy sources must be curtailed. Even with
the use of renewable energy sources, this will require a significant
change in our lifestyle.

The presentation is roughly an hour long, and this will be followed by
an open discussion so that those attending can clarify any of the issues
raised. There will also be an opportunity to buy a copies of 'Energy
Beyond Oil' book.
