Crash Course Hits Atlanta
Evolver Atlanta presents...
Are you ready to learn everything you need to know about the economic, environmental, and energy crises -- in the shortest amount of time?
Chris Martenson is a trained scientist (PhD in neurotoxicology from Duke University) and financier (MBA from Cornell), who after discovering for himself the dangerous precipice our civilization rests on, radically altered his personal and professional life. A former vice president of a Fortune 300 company and owner of a waterfront mansion in Mystic, CT, Martenson now lives in rural, western Massachusetts, where he homeschools his children, grows a garden, and aims for a low-impact, self-sufficient lifestyle to brace his family for the storm he sees coming.
The Crash Course is an exposition of the information that led Martenson to make the sweeping changes in his life he saw as necessary. He reveals the "big picture" of a compounding crisis arising out of exponential growth in debt, energy use, and resource depletion. Presented in comprehensible, down-to-earth terms with plenty of real-world examples and graphical depictions, Martenson makes it possible for someone with no training in economics or science to walk away with a clear understanding of why "the next 20 years will be completely unlike the last 20 years."
Join us at ParkGrounds for the full 3 hour 20 minute presentation, followed by a short slide show to bring everybody up to date on what is happening now under the Obama administration. As always, open discussion will follow.
We would like to cultivate a constructive mindset on what we can realistically do to work our way out of these problems, because the only way that it will happen is if we organize on a grassroots, community level. So be sure to bring these ideas with you to the event!
