I apologise that the information is disturbing. But comfort yourself that you gain big advantages by learning about it early, and being able to prepare to live more simply on much less energy.

PS. Over the past decade many people have done their best to inform others, and I believe I have done more than my share of warning. Unfortunately, few have heeded these warnings. It is of special concern that governments, councils, the judiciary, and most community leaders have not listened. Time for community/country preparation has run out we are on our own.

POLITICAL PARTIES REACTION TO PEAK OIL
After nearly 10 years of this group informing politicians from all parties about Peak Oil, they would have to be very stupid or outright liars to deny knowledge of these facts. It seems the further right you go the more wrong they are.
Independent of “Oilcrash.com”, Derek Wilson has been trying to inform this government and opposition parties about the imminent peak in oil supplies. Here are some of his efforts.

Transition Towns Kapiti have taken it upon themselves to climb into bed with Kapiti Coast District Council and are currently helping place a toxic mercury bomb above the heads of every child on The Nature Coast.
