Nicole Foss, Energy Consultant and Financial Blogger, presented the Feasta Annual Lecture at The Greenhouse,17 St. Andrew Street, Dublin 2.
Tuesday 3rd August 2010 at 7pm.

Peak Oil and the collapse of global Ponzi finance are a “perfect storm” of converging phenomena that threaten to sink our age of prosperity through wealth destruction, social discontent, and global conflict.

Foss, who blogs under the name “Stoneleigh” at the website The Automatic Earth (www.theautomaticearth.blogspot.com), discussed the many converging factors that are contributing to the multi-faceted predicament we face today, and how individuals can build a “lifeboat” to cope with the difficult years ahead.
