Richard Hienberg lays out the basics of Peak Oil,
its implications and what we're doing about it.
A three-part series based on interviewies conducted in
April, 2006. Introduction updates program 1.
Produced by Tom Allen
By the spring of 2006 the price of oil had begun its
relentless climb toward the peak of $147/barrel.
That peak would sink the economy and send the price
plunging back to $30/barrel. Subsequently the price
recovered to $85/ barrel only to fall again. This is the
price behavior students of peak oil had predicted when
the world reaches the peak of procduction. Now
constrained by energy resources, no amount of money
from central banks can guraantee growth in the world
economy. But more important, no amount of money
thrown at exploration or extraction can guarantee
growth in energy supplies. Heinberg and Allen discuss
the implications not just for transportation but more
importantly for agruculture.
From the catistrophic blowout in the Gulf of Mexico we
are beginning to see the lengths to which industry will
go insure its survival regardless of threats to the planet. This is what the post-peak world looks like.
