in Whatcom Community College in Bellingham (northwest corner of
Wa. State). It's an introductory physics course with nearly complete
emphasis on dealing with our expected energy future - which will
be driven by decline of oil and natural gas. During the first introductory
week, we cover (in a rudimentary fashion) just about all issues
associated with peak oil and watch the EOS dvd. I'll be placing
this poster in the class meeting room, and from what I can read
from it on your website it will make a valuable focus for many conversations."

age, and I believe that it is important to educate them regarding
oil use and depletion. For example, I have already shared an activity
with my physics students where they analyze fuel economy vs speed
curves for various model automobiles to determine which speeds are
the most efficient for driving. The students were definitely interested
in this activity, especialy since some of them drive large SUV styled
