A Call to Arms
I am seeing more and more information about peak oil arriving in the media. Not is a major sense, and often from an odd angle, but here's Heinberg, author of 'The Party's Over' issuing a call to arms over Peak Oil: Oil is a finite resource - and the decline of world oil production is predicted to occur anytime within the next 30 years. To avoid the worst-case scenario, we must begin today to reduce our dependence on oil. Clear and to the point.

Good question. My reply would be that the end of the age of oil offers a unique opportunity when the military force that maintains the current status-quo will be unable to sustain itself and new possibilities can evolve - but only if we look for ways to live outside it now. Capitalism is a high energy system - in our low energy future, we have hope for a just and sustainable world.
