Says the New Statesman: Such is our dependence on oil, we face a shock that will dwarf any crisis of the past. It’s a good job the government hasn’t ruled out rations – only the effort of a war economy is likely to help.
It had to happen sometime. Credit to this British Newspaper, sticking out its neck in a special supplement spelling out the grim prospects peak oil will mean for everyone and calling for drastic action on the scale of a “war economy”.
Especially interesting is the in-depth analysis of just Britain’s situation, a tiny crowded island probably not able to grow enough food without fossil fuel driven agriculture and distribution.
Excellent reading – click on the link to download the whole supplement.
