Richard Heinberg, The End of Growth: Peak Oil and the Economy of the Future at The First Church in Jamaica Plain, Unitarian Universalist

May 15, 2011 from 3pm to 5pm
Come hear Richard Heinberg: We all take economic growth for granted – until it falters, as in 2008. But what if the recent economic meltdown was not just an interruption in the story of continuous economic expansion, but the first sign of the end of growth as we know it?Will the convergence of financial instability, the end of cheap oil, and climate change usher in an era of contraction? In other words, do we have to adapt to a “new normal”?Traditional economic growth is not the best measure of…See More

Hi Chuck,

Welcome to the Transition Massachusetts networking and information site, which provides multiple opportunities to connect with and learn from others who share your interests and concerns. You can perhaps attract more members to your Jamaica Plain New Economy Transition group by sending a special invitation to all site members who list JP as their city. You can use this link to find them. Also, I recommend adding a (square) image to the group page, one that will evoke JP when people see it (at least for those who know).

Another great benefit of membership on this statewide site is the exchange of ideas found in the Forum. I encourage everyone to follow these discussions and to participate. To learn how to most easily follow discussions on the Forum, please read my post (in the Forum) titled "Let's Strengthen our Transition Massachusetts community." Click here to view that post directly. Implementing the simple changes described will make it easier to follow and participate in the conversations on this site.

Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Conrad
