"We're drillin' three miles down in the Gulf of Mexico because of peak oil,"

Huh .. I thought it was because they were no longer allowed drilling permits on the mainland, or in Alaska.

What happened with that spill? A natural substance spilled, and it's now pretty well gone, all the hysteria must have got rid of it(?)

No mention of other fuels at all.

What do car companies know that these hysterics and doomsayer do not know?

If all this is true, why are they not shutting up now, to avoid the rush in 2015?

This is yet another hysterical and exaggerated attempt to curb people's progress.

Anyone who hands out forecasts and prophesies has got to wonder themselves what are they doing?

We'll survive and adapt, always have always will, be positive rather than negative about it.

I for one do not want to go the way of handing over to the current government total control of our future, they stuff up everything they touch so far (not that the other mob is better) but I don't want to go the way of the do gooders and eco whackos telling us what to do and when.

Sterling advice, rpg.
King Canute, facing the incoming tide in ancient Britain a thousand years ago, had much the same.

Good article Jennie but I fear that it will fall on deaf ears. I wonder why the major parties ignore it or they really do not know about it?

Oh Dear rpg.
Here we go again.
I have decided that you are either an agent provocateur or non-compos mentis.

SORRY...cant be reading...yet..ANOTHER..peak-oil..crisis
we havnt..EVEN..reached..PEAK_OIL

we invented...decades ago..the joe-fuel/cell
it can replace*...oil...ANYTIME

trouble..being..
it makes fuel;...FOR FREE

anything..that can run..on petro..chemical
can run..on the HH..gas..the joe-fuel call generates

[inside a stainless steel...fuel cell
costing 30 bucks to make]

trouble being..no more fuel sales
[thus..the powers to be suppress it]

but govt can RENT..THEM..out to us..direct
to cover..the shortfall..in fuel-tax..exise

and a small bonus..for corperate..welfare..for those..poor*..oil industry colluders..suppressing..this australian..invention

One under god. I don't wish to get off the subject here, although it's relevant, but I'm afraid you're extremely ignorant on the matter of the hoax of the water powered vehicles, which I assume you're alluding to here since the article states that "oil products power 95 per cent of land transport."

The most crucial fact of this rubbish is the 1st law of thermodynamics which states you can neither create energy of destroy energy. This means that the prospect of driving a vehicle more than a very short distance using the electrical energy of that vehicle is impossible.

For 'god's' sake! This nonsense has been debunked time and again, but the article linked below is one of the better explanations I've heard as to why a water-powered vehicle will never happen and I might add that the guy who wrote the article has studied basic Chemistry and Nuclear Physics and has an Honours Degree in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. See here......

OUG, do you hold credentials like that? If you do, then perhaps you can explain why you'd toss known laws of physics out the window to support your 'water-power' theory?

Reading this ladies thumbnail resume, I have to wonder just what she was doing at a conference half way around the world, on the danger of reaching peak oil.

Surely if she & the other attendees are so worried about peak oil, they would not want to be wasting the stuff, flitting around the globe to conferences that could be arranged by video. No didnít think that would suit.

Meanwhile we have our pollies continually spruiking about some vast new export deal making us a fortune with natural gas, coal seam gas, or some other gas.

Perhaps Jenny & all those other experts have not realised that you can bottle the stuff. In fact thatís how we export it, just in very large bottles built into ships.

Jenny, if you look in some service stations you will find they have outlets that can pump the stuff into a tank, something like a petrol tank, in your car, & it will power your car for you. Wonders will never cease. We have enough of this stuff to power Oz for centaury or two, before we start on shale oil, & coal liquefaction.

Recently they have found enough of the stuff under just 3 of the states of the USA to power that quite large country for about a centaury or so.

Strangely Obama is resisting the extraction of this resource, just as he is preventing the extraction of much of the known US oil reserves.

Could there be some hidden agenda, that Obama, the peak oil folk, & you wish to push, but can only achieve your goal if you keep the full facts hidden from the public
