When I sent this out earlier, the subject but not the message body
was posted to the forums on our new web site. The problem seems to
be when the message has HTML in it. It goes to the e-mail list OK
but not to the forum. This time, I'll send it as text only.


If you haven't seen End of Suburbia, this may be a good time,
especially if you think the increase in gas prices are temporary.

Sep. 14 ~ End of Suburbia and Matthew Simmons (Wed) 7pm, at the
Museum of Fine Arts Houston, 1001 Bissonnet at Main Street.

More details are at the Houston Indymedia calendar:

With brutal honesty and a touch of irony, The End of Suburbia
explores the American way of life and its prospects as the planet
approaches a critical era, as global demand for fossil fuels begins
to outstrip supply. World Oil Peak and the inevitable decline of
fossil fuels are upon us, say some experts in this documentary.
Matthew Simmons, who is interviewed in the documentary, is the CEO of
the world's largest Energy Investment Bank, Simmons & Co.
International, with clients including Halliburton and the World Bank.
Simmons is a also a member of the US Council on Foreign Relations and
the National Petroleum Council's Natural Gas Task Force and, as such,
has contributed "insider" perspective and hard facts to the study of
Peak Oil and its effects. Mr. Simmons will be available to answer
questions afterward.
