How do you sell powerdown and population reduction?


Sell population reduction? You can't even talk about it. Alas the less we talk about it the more chance there is of it happening in the worst way.

Compared to a few years ago, there's a lot of reporting and opinion in the 'quality' papers. As there is no 'solution' to PO that gives a BAU future, it's a difficult subject to promote. How do you sell powerdown and population reduction?


Yes, true, and the following link I've just read on the BBC proves you right. It goes round and round and doesn't mention PO and the resulting consequences (which is why I've said what I've said on previous post about quality of news coverage in mainstream media Mad

Well, I guess it's an improvement... yay! Razz Confused Not enough! Crying or Very sad

Energy crisis 'will be permanent'

Fossil fuels will be the main energy sources for another 50 years
Scarce and expensive energy supplies are to become the norm in the UK, leading academics have warned.
It comes in a report that aims to provide the government with a feasible solution to the country's looming energy crisis.

It says fundamental changes to the way people produce and use energy will be needed to cope with the shortage.

The report was written by John Loughead, Executive Director of the UK Energy Research Centre.

If the UK is to remain on the path of reducing emissions of greenhouse gases, it will need to retain some nuclear capacity

John Loughead


UK faces energy gap

It followed a meeting between 150 scientific, technical,economic and sociological experts at Burlington House in October, under the auspices of The Geological Society of London.


The document says energy will inevitably become less available and more expensive than it has been for the last few decades.

It says while the role of renewable energy will increase over the coming years, fossil fuels will remain the country's most important source for the next 50 years.

It advises clean systems, including carbon capture and storage, should be pursued urgently.

Hi, this is a repost put here by suggestion of thorgal:

I'm one of he very few peakoilers living in Portugal.

Around here we are trying to make something happen in Thanksgiving.

As you people probably know Thanksgiving 2005 is the symbolic date chosen by prof. Deffeys as the Oil Peak day. The idea is to use this date to bring the Peak Oil issue to the largest number of people possible simultaneously.

Time is short, so major events might be out of the question; but we can use our favorite mean of communication to achieve something, the internet. I believe that if a large number of people mailed every contact in their electronic address book in the same day with the same thing we could achieve something.

This e-mail might be just a short intro on the subject with a bunch of links to the major websites on Peak Oil. Here we have a slideshow in Portuguese almost ready; English speaking folk could just use something already done (there?s plenty over the web), like the flash presentation here in PowerSwitch (http://www.powerswitch.org.uk/portal/images/stories/animoil.swf).

To such thing work, first it has to be shared with the largest number of peakoilers possible, and finally in the last Thursday of November the major broadcast would take place.

Anyone in France wants to join?

Any thoughts on this?

Our forum is bigger than yours.*

No one for betting(totaly free no bonus offer) on the date for the 100$

With the high oil prices this last month we've got a lot of new members, some of them are coming from bulleimmobiliere.org(the french equivalent for housepricecrash).It's good they are executives, bankers, no hippies with long bear and hair(like me).
What about you?
Is peak-oil tends to become mainstream now?


*But our website is crappy
