Age of Limits Conference

limits-to-growth-forecast_sml

Those of you who read this blog in a blog reader may have noticed that we said we were going to the Age of Limits conference at the Four Quarters Interfaith sanctuary in Pennsylvania this past weekend. In this interest of privacy, we decided not to let the entire world know we were leaving our house for the weekend, but somehow the announcement ended up on the blog temporarily. Apologies to those who tried to comment on a non-existent blog post.

We did, in fact, go to the conference which featured John Michael Greer, Dr. Carolyn Baker, Dmitry Orlov, Gail Tverberg, Guy McPherson and Albert Bates.

Both Kelly and I are exhausted and still processing the information. We’ll get around to writing about it soon.
