A Century of Challenges

EVENT: Friday, June 17 at 7:00pm

Housing values. Budget cuts. High gas prices. We’re bound to bounce back soon and then things will be “normal” again. Right?

Wrong, says internationally acclaimed energy and economic analyst Nicole Foss. “We will see a big shakeup of who has what. The people who do well are not necessarily going to be the people who are wealthy now.”

Foss views peak oil and the ongoing collapse of global finance as a “perfect storm,” which threatens to trigger wealth destruction, social discontent, and global conflict.

Writing under the pen name Stoneleigh, Foss is co-editor of the blog “The Automatic Earth.” She integrates finance, energy, environment, psychology, population, and real politik. She is touring the U.S. and will be appearing in the Los Angeles area on two select evenings.

Come discuss both our predicament and the ways we can create locally to face these challenges together.

Holy Nativity Church, 6700 W. 83rd, Westchester/LA 90045

Nicole Foss will also be speaking on Thursday, June 16 at 7:00pm at Throop Church, 300 S. Los Robles Ave, Pasadena, $5 suggested donation
