Peter Orphanos, chair of the Peel Region chapter of the Sierra Club, will be speaking at our public meeting on May 20th, 2008 on the topic of the 'The true cost of fossil fuels' in relation to the environment.
As we see gas prices reach new heights, we need to understand how we have arrived to this level of dependence on fossil fuels and what this means for the environment which is changing so rapidly due to human activity.
Peter, who retired from a successful teaching and administrative career five years ago, is now an active environmentalist, with expertise at several levels of governmental administration. He is regularly called upon by municipalities for advice on how to create sustainable neighbourhoods while reducing our dependency on non-renewable resources.
We encourage you to attend this interesting evening which starts at 7:30p in the Acorn Grill of the Oakville Town Centre.
