ACT Peak Oil - International http://act-peakoil.org/taxonomy/term/5/0 Relates to the whole world. en Letter to The Economist magazine http://act-peakoil.org/node/111 <p class="ecxMsoNormal"><span lang="EN-US">Your leader (&#8216;Yesterday&#8217;s fuel&#8217; August 3<sup>rd</sup>2013) is correct in asserting that advances in automotive efficiency and certain environmental (essentially energy efficiency) policies will <i>ceteris paribus</i>&nbsp;reduce global demand for oil. This is precisely why so many peak oil organisations are lobbying explicitly for incentives for energy efficiency, such as replacing or reducing income taxes with the introduction or increase of oil and gas taxes.&nbsp;</span></p> <p><a href="http://act-peakoil.org/node/111">read more</a></p> http://act-peakoil.org/node/111#comments International Media release News Thu, 15 Aug 2013 11:05:48 +1000 admin 111 at http://act-peakoil.org Strategies for Sustainability with Nicole Foss http://act-peakoil.org/node/108 <img src="/files/mulloon.jpg" width="100%"/> <div style="TEXT-ALIGN: center; FONT-SIZE: 26pt" align="center"><b>Strategies for Sustainability</b></div> <div style="TEXT-ALIGN: center; FONT-SIZE: 12pt" align="center">with</div> <div style="TEXT-ALIGN: center; FONT-SIZE: 26pt" align="center"><b>Nicole Foss</b></div></td></tr></tbody></table> <table id="content_LETTER.BLOCK21" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%"> <tbody> <tr> <td style="PADDING-BOTTOM: 9px; PADDING-LEFT: 32px; PADDING-RIGHT: 32px; FONT-FAMILY: Verdana, Geneva, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; FONT-SIZE: 14pt; PADDING-TOP: 8px" align="left" valign="top"> <div style="TEXT-ALIGN: center" align="center"><span>Sunday, 7 April 2013</span></div></td></tr></tbody></table> <table id="content_LETTER.BLOCK8" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%"> <tbody> <tr> <td style="PADDING-BOTTOM: 9px; PADDING-LEFT: 32px; PADDING-RIGHT: 32px; FONT-FAMILY: Tahoma, Arial, sans-serif; FONT-SIZE: 10pt; PADDING-TOP: 8px" align="left" valign="top"><span> <div style="FONT-FAMILY: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><span style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt">It is no secret that we are living in interesting and challenging times, and collaborative strategies for sustainability are what we need if we are to address our planetary emergency head-on.&nbsp;</span></div> <p style="MARGIN-TOP: 0px; MARGIN-BOTTOM: 0px">&nbsp;</p> <div style="FONT-FAMILY: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><strong>Nicole Foss</strong>, an internationally recognised expert on sustainability and finance, is returning to Mulloon Creek Natural Farms to explain the links between the converging pressures facing the globe - peak oil, financial crisis, and climate change - and the implications for our everyday lives and <strong>what we can do</strong> to address them.<br><br></div> </td></tr></tbody></table></td></tr></tbody></table> <p><a href="http://act-peakoil.org/node/108">read more</a></p> http://act-peakoil.org/node/108#comments International Local Survival tips Coming events Tue, 12 Mar 2013 14:49:06 +1100 admin 108 at http://act-peakoil.org Dinner with Nicole Foss http://act-peakoil.org/node/107 <p align="CENTER"><font size="4"><strong>ACT Peak Oil, Nature and Society Forum and Sustainable Population Australia</strong></font></p> <p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm"><font size="4"><strong>invite you to</strong></font></p> <p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm"><font size="7" style="font-size: 48pt"><em><strong>Dinner with Nicole Foss</strong></em></font></p> <p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm">acclaimed international expert on energy and the economy</p> <p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm"> <img src="http://act-peakoil.org/files/Nicole Foss.png"/></p> <p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm"> </p> <p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm"><font size="6"><strong>7pm Wednesday 10 April 2013</strong></font></p> <p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm"><font size="6"><strong>Brassey Hotel </strong></font> </p> <p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm">Belmore Gardens,<strong> </strong>Barton</p> <p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm"> </p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm">$55 per ticket for two course meal.

Trend lines on graphs of sea-ice extent show the Arctic could be ice-free as early as September 2015 and almost certainly by 2020. With more exposed ocean absorbing more radiation and less ice to reflect it, a positive feedback mechanism has been set in train. </p> <p><a href="http://act-peakoil.org/node/100">read more</a></p> http://act-peakoil.org/node/100#comments International News Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:28:43 +1000 admin 100 at http://act-peakoil.org Richard Heinberg's Canberra presentation audio available http://act-peakoil.org/node/99 <p>Community radio station 2XX has made available Richard Heinberg's talk from September 21:</p> <p><a href="http://fuzzylogicon2xx.podbean.com/2012/09/23/the-end-of-growth/">http://fuzzylogicon2xx.podbean.com/2012/09/23/the-end-of-growth/</a></p> http://act-peakoil.org/node/99#comments International Local Media release National Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:23:27 +1000 admin 99 at http://act-peakoil.org Richard Heinberg speaks in Canberra September 21 http://act-peakoil.org/node/98 <p>ACT Peak Oil is pleased to announce acclaimed author and Peak Oil expert <strong><a href="http://richardheinberg.com">Richard Heinberg</a></strong> will be in Canberra to speak at <strong>a local event on <a href="http://richardheinbergincanberra.eventbrite.com/">Friday September 21 at ANU Manning Clark Theatre 1, 7pm</a></strong><br /> Richard Heinberg is touring Australia as a guest of <a href="http://www.population.org.au">Sustainable Population Australia</a> and sustainable population activist <a href="http://dicksmithpopulation.com">Dick Smith</a>.
