Daniel Lerch, Author of "Post Carbon Cities"

  • Nov 14, 2007 · 7:30 PM
  • Metro Hall

19:30: MeetUp begins.

The November Toronto meetup will feature Daniel Lerch, author of Post Carbon Cities. Daniel, a former planner in Portland, Oregon, is with Post Carbon Institute, and will be here on a book tour. "Post Carbon Cities: Planning for Energy and Climate Uncertainty" is a guidebook on peak oil and global warming for people who work with and for local governments in the United States and Canada. It provides a sober look at how these phenomena are quickly creating new uncertainties and vulnerabilities for cities of all sizes, and explains what local decision-makers can do to address these challenges.

Post Carbon Cities fills an important gap in the resources currently available to local government decision-makers on planning for the changing global energy and climate context of the 21st century.

Directions to venue:

We've changed our venue again this month, to Metro Hall.

Metro Hall is at 55 John Street, half a block south of the corner of King and John Streets, and two blocks east of Spadina.

Here's a better map than the one above:

Map of vicinity of Metro Hall.

By public transit, take the subway to St. Andrew on the University line. (This is the station at King Street on that line.)

Then walk through the underground "PATH" system to Metro Hall. Or walk above ground 2 blocks west on King Street, and then south on John Street.

Directions to social event:

After the MeetUp, we have a social gathering somewhere in the neighborhood to continue our discussion. This time I hope we can use the Duke of Argyll pub just north on John Street, if their "maintenance" is finished. Otherwise we'll end up at Philthy McNasty's again.

    Great speaker appropriately packaging the peak oil material for a targetted audience: municipal governance workers.
