Post Carbon Institute Offers Nate Hagens Talk, Sunday, 6:30 pm

Corvallis-Benton County Public Library, 645 NW Monroe Ave., Corvallis. 6:30 p.m. Free.

What do the converging environmental, economic, and energy crises mean for the fate of humanity? What can the long arc of human history teach us about our uncertain future? The Post Carbon Institute invites you to join in an evening with Nate Hagens in Corvallis. You’ll have a conversation based on Hagens’ work, which explores how once human individual and collective behavior are integrated with energy, climate, and resource constraints, there becomes a much clearer timeline and priority of human response. What does this synthesis mean for us here in Oregon?
