Despite increasing amounts of information about Peak Oil recently many people seem to think that we are on the right track and that climate change is the big problem. Sorry, we aren’t and it isn’t.
We are increasingly falling behind and even people who understand this usually do not understand that we can do something about it. We need to drive energy systems transformation in a planned and managed fashion. This is the only possible and economically efficient way.
The big problem is the global peak in oil production, “Peak Oil,” which threatens our economy and our whole way of life.
Doing nothing to inform decision makers about the need to develop strategies and plans to coordinate change efforts is not a good alternative. We need to start to debate the need for change, and which activities we need to initiate short term. One of the first needs to be the development of strategies and plans to drive change forward.
