Download Hour1 Download Hour2 Our present way of life in America is not sustainable. The question is whether we can make a transition to a graceful and sustainable future society, or descend into energy warlordism. Conservation, limits to growth and consumption and the transition to renewable energy and organic agriculture are some of the necessary approaches to the peak oil discussion.

Both of this week's presentations were recorded at the first US conference on peak oil and community solutions that was held in November 2004 in Yellow Springs, Ohio.
