Peak Oil again

Even if you’re a climate change denyer (some brentford transitioner associates??) maybe better not deny ‘peak oil’ (read all about it on the ‘peak oil’ page) – see this article (and its comments at the end) about a conference on the subject in the US today. (It’s a long read but note it’s not ‘nimsy-wimsy eco-terrorists’ but the American Military and Department of Defense that are cited as stating “by 2012, surplus oil production capacity (in the world) could entirely disappear, and as early as 2015, the shortfall in output could reach nearly 10 million barrels per day” (Joint Operating Environment, 2008, 2010).
