ACT Peak Oil

About ACT Peak Oil
ACT Peak Oil is a non-profit group concerned with the issue of peak oil/peak energy and its twin, climate change. We believe that peak oil is either occurring now or is soon approaching and that preparing for and dealing with the consequences will require significant changes to our economy, to trade, to our lifestyles and to our lives. Our aim is to raise public, political and corporate awareness within Australia of the inevitable decline in availability of oil by researching, analysing and presenting the issue of Peak Oil and its impact on sustainability and the environment.

An Inconvenient Truth - Early, Cheap Advance Screening

Tickets only $1.50?!?!?
Humanity is sitting on a time bomb. If the vast majority of the world’s scientists are right, we have just ten years to avert a major catastrophe that could send our entire planet’s climate system into a tail-spin of epic destruction involving extreme weather, floods, droughts, epidemics and killer heat waves beyond anything we have ever experienced- a catastrophe of our own making.

Oil crisis missing from National Capital plans

The National Capital Authority is seeking public comment on its strategic blueprint for future planning of Canberra, called The Griffin Legacy.

ACT Peak Oil will be making a submission to this process. We are concerned that no account has been taken of the coming impact of high oil prices. Would the proposed NCA vision be made irrelevant by petrol at $3/litre, or $10/litre?

Any comments you have about the plan would be welcome and considered for inclusion in our submission.

For more see the National Capital Authority.
