Philadelphia Philly Beyond Oil is the name of a conference to be held on September 18, 2005 in Center City. It will focus on energy issues, national security, and the global climate crisis. The conference brings together nationally known and local speakers to answer the question: what is the addiction to oil costing our city, state, and country?

Since preparations began 4 months ago, there has been an exponential increase in the amount of coverage given to energy issues. The public is beginning to hear the phrase 'peak oil. ' A keynote speaker is Jan Lundberg, former editor of the 'Lundberg Report ', one of the most well known oil industry publications. He will discuss the factual basis of the 'peak oil ' thesis, and what should be done about it.

This year is also the 10th anniversary of Ken Saro-Wiwa 's execution in Nigeria, in the context of an environmental struggle against Shell Oil. His son, Ken Wiwa, will kick off 'The Price of Oil ' Tour at this conference.

Antonia Juhasz, a fellow at the Institute of Policy Studies, will present information about Iraq 's oil fields and how the figure in the planning and execution of the Iraq War.
