The MP3 file I linked to in the title is the audio portion of a briefing held on October 7 by the Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) for Congressional staffers, media, and other interested parties. This was a significant briefing, and was featured by The Oil Drum.
There were numerous caveats, however the message was consistent: We Have A Problem Looming! Whether our Congressional representatives for both Houses will rise to the occasion, and how they choose to do so, is unknown. The speakers are clear that the solutions will take a long time to implement and some of the solutions in favor today may not be viable for the long term, if at all.
