UNI faculty member to hold discussion, signing for his book on energy realities

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- Kamyar Enshayan, will discuss ideas in his new book, 'Living Within Our Means: Beyond the Fossil Fuel Credit Card,' and sign copies, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 28, at University Book & Supply in Cedar Falls.

The book by Enshayan, program manager at the University of Northern Iowa's Center for Energy and Environmental Education, is a collection of essays that examine key ideas underlying the energy choices that face citizens today. The volume is aimed at students in environmental studies classes, policymakers at the community level and citizens who are concerned about how we can live within the limits of our resources.

An engineer by training and a Cedar Falls city councilman, he brings his experience to the question of how communities can plan for the time when oil production is declining, which petroleum geologists predict will happen sometime in this decade.

'Living Within Our Means' is also available from Bought Again Books and the Cedar Falls Historical Society. It also may be ordered directly from Enshayan at the University of Northern Iowa, Center for Energy and Environmental Education, Cedar Falls 50614-0293, 319-273-7575 or email kamyar.enshayan@uni.edu. Proceeds from the book will support the work of the UNI Local Food Project.
