Wednesday, August 30, 7–8:30 pm

Corvallis-Benton County Public Library

Richard Heinberg is the author of thirteen books, including some of the seminal works on society’s current energy and environmental crises. He is Senior Fellow of the Post Carbon Institute and is regarded as one of the world’s foremost advocates for a shift away from our current reliance on fossil fuels.

To transition society away from our reliance on climate-changing fossil fuels, one of the most effective responses is local grassroots action, to build resilience at the community level. This is where those most affected by government policy have the greatest ability to shape it. It’s also the place where it may still be possible to work around political stereotypes to identify common values and goals.
