Peak Oil, followed by Peak Gas, Uranium, and Coal, in about that order will
shortly make travel, and many other activities prohibitively expensive and
we will find that CO2 emissions will start dropping.

I do not know if the various Peaks will be in time to save us from Global
Warming and wrecking ecological disaster on this planet first. I doubt,
personally that we will be so lucky.

For more on Peak Oil, start with or
use Goggle.

The recent posts on climate change are an interesting mixed bag. Churlishly
I could see discussions about flights to various exotic locales to see a
"one off" bird for twitching purposes as little different to the Sydney
Morning Herald prattling on about climate change with a large advertisement
for a gas guzzling Jaguar on the same page.

As the head of Blair's panel on the issue pointed out some months ago - we
haven't yet got the picture of how big the changes are we will have to make.
We literally have to turn off the air-conditioning, sell the
jetski/4x4/trailbike ad nauseum now if our kids are to continue seeing

Our will to do this I suspect is limited by a socio-economic system which
sees individuals as modularised consuming units within a system of
production for productions sake. Without fundamental change to the
underlying philosophy of this society there will be little real effort to
reduce the impact of climate change.

Just a short note on corruption. I remember a Tanzanian engineer in
Daresalem  saying corruption was endemic in Africa but "you white guys are
so good at it". That might be how Paul Lennon is feeling at the moment with
the loaded Gunn or Dick Cheney who has managed to give Halliburton a
permanant IV from the US budget.
