Transit in a Post-Peak Oil World

This weekend, the transport advocacy group Transport 2000 Ontario will be holding its annual general meeting, along with a public forum. Keynote speaker Richard Gilbert will be talking about the impact of peak oil (the moment when world production starts to fail to keep up with world demand) on public transportation.

With the depletion of oil clearly on the horizon, and the environmental effects of climate change visible everywhere, in association with its AGM, Transport 2000 is pleased to present a public forum that will bridge the global context with the local. An authority on energy and transportation, our keynote speaker will provide the large picture, and our panel of discussants will consider the implications of his findings for a sustainable transportation network for Southwestern Ontario. Please attend and bring a friend!

In addition to the keynote address, a public panel will talk about “Implications for Southwestern Ontario. What went wrong?”

The annual general meeting portion of the meeting will take place between 10:30 a.m. and 12 noon on Saturday, March 29 in room 302 of Metro Hall (at the corner of King and John streets). The public forum will take place in room 310 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. that afternoon.
