Bringing it all together
three different focuses; The Meetup, The environmentalist, and the Peak
Oiler represent a few of the many ways in which individuals are
becoming a part of the Peak Oil Movement. The Meetup represents
concerned individuals who want to become engaged by group discussion.
These groups are a way to hear what other individuals are doing in
their life as well as to have a group of like-minded individuals who
want to talk about the implications of Peak Oil. They are spreading to
metropolitan areas and small cities around the country. Christopher
Childs represents the interconnectedness between environmental
movements and Peak Oil. His demonstrates how we can lessen our reliance
on oil by investing in alternative technologies and be conscious of the
energy we use. He chose to lower his carbon footprint and intern
lower his dependence on oil by promoting alternative energies. My
conversation with Thomas Welna represents how individuals can take
action and promote resources for others on Peak Oil. He has gotten
involved in the movement by educating other about it and promoting
solutions to the problems of the future. These individuals in the
Minneapolis and St. Paul area are making noise in this metro area,

citizens. Environmentalists and Peak Oil followers are related
fundamentally and one affects the other significantly. There cannot be
a divide between groups if there anything is going to be accomplished.
And finally we must not rely on innovation that may not come true. It
is important to be aware about the amount of oil we use each day and
think of alternatives to get away from this lifestyle thinking.
were making some noise in Minneapolis, it may only be barely audible to
a few individuals but that sound is growing, and will continue to
reverberate across this city, state, and nation.
