Hey permies,

There are some interesting articles on EnergyBulletin.net on
how we're not dealing just with peak oil but with  the economic
crisis and climate change all mixed together.  Everything has
become more complex, opaque, and unpredictable.  While many
respected analysts think oil production peaked last year, our
conventional neighbors are still unwilling to talk about it. 
One useful thing to do is build alliances with the climate
change community, and refer to that more widely understood part of the crisis to wake up as many others as we can.  Gotta start somewhere, right? So please forward the following as widely as you can.  And join us in the streets.

On October 24, join people all over the world to take a
stand for a safe climate future.

This fall, the world will set its response to climate change. 
In December, an international conference in Copenhagen will
negotiate a global climate treaty level.  Will it be strong
enough to bring greenhouse gases down to safe levels?  Or will
it be too weak? In the next few months there will be both
worldwide negotiations, and a global call to action, demanding
a strong and enforceable climate treaty.

On Saturday, October 24th, the international Day of Climate
Action, citizens around the world will hold events calling for
a treaty to limit carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to 350 parts
per million ��� what scientists tell us is the upper safe limit. 
We���re already over that now. Join us, and citizens around the
world, to call for bringing CO2 down to safe levels. www.350.
org.
