Freelance Canadian journalist, Andrew Nikiforuk spoke at the 12th annual Illinois Renewable Energy and Sustainable Lifestyle Fair in Oregon, IL on Sunday August 18, 2013. As the program states, Mr. Nikiforuk presents a unique perspective of our energy use based on his most recent book, The Energy of Slaves. "In it he points out that cheap oil has created an army of energy slaves or machines that provide us with comforts the same way human slaves once did. The proliferation of billions of energy slaves poses a variety of social, environmental and political challenges along with the end of cheap oil. He asks the questions: Who are the masters and who are the slaves?" The talk was introduced by Bob Vogl, President of the Illinois Renewable Energy Association.
