Post Carbon Newsletter - December 2008

Post Carbon Newsletter - December 2008


It has been a dramatic year! This month we thought to take a look back over global events and our work to bring you the year in review.

We may well look back at 2008 as a seminal year. A new article from Senior Fellow Richard Heinberg brings his perspective on the key events of 2008 in relation to peak oil and climate change. Daniel Lerch from Post Carbon Cities provides an engaging round-up of key government responses to peak oil and new legislation around sustainability, while Shelby Tay shares highlights from a busy year in This month's Energy Bulletin section features editor Bart Anderson's choice of the top news stories of the year and the articles which best described them.

Also don't miss our highlights from Global Public Media and our Commentaries feature.

Finally, we would like to say a great big THANK YOU for all of your support throughout 2008. Despite the enormous challenge ahead of us, everyone at Post Carbon Institute feels privileged to be part of this extraordinary community of people working to make the transition to a post carbon world.

With best wishes from all of us at Post Carbon.
