Worried about Peak Oil?

And wondering what plans our Gov has to account for the forthcoming oil supply crunch?

Well, rather surprisingly, our Gov seems to think that oil supplies will not be a problem and that our economy will continue to sustain and grow as the UK's demand for oil continues to grow too.

Most experts within the oil business itself believe that peak oil will create a major economic headache for the western world and most western governments are actually making contingency plans - well, except ours.

Not compulsory, of course, but if you would like to lobby our Gov to actually DO something please feel free to sign up to the following Downing Street petition.

Thanks for the share.

Not alwasy big on petitions, but this was a masterpiece of simplicity, common sense and polite prodding.

And therefore in all probability doomed!

I just find it rather a worry that so little seesm to have been put in place, much less done to allow for the possibility.

Now another reason to delay the newsletter to add this in!
