LOCAL group Walden in Transition is to continue its current series of events with a talk on the potentially catastrophic effects of the terminal decline in global oil production.
Journalist and film-maker David Strahan is the guest speaker at the event.
He has many years experience of popularising some of the most difficult and important stories in business and science.
For a decade he reported and produced major investigations for BBC television's The Money Programme and Horizon strands. He is now also the author of a provocative book about 'peak oil' called The Last Oil Shock.
Dr Stephen Willoughby from Walden in Transition said: "We are delighted to welcome David Strahan to Saffron Walden and to hear his message about how we have reached a critical state which he regards as more dangerous than terrorism.
"David also explains how we can protect our families from the ravages of the last oil shock."
