Abundancy Partners (2009): Open Letter to the Queen

Copia disponible en

Energy underlies everything – Scylla and Charybdis of peak oil and climate change. The underlying cause of the current economic meltdown is a multi-generational debt-binge inextricably linked to a concomitant multi-generational energy-binge. The Academy’s letter focuses on some «imbalances in the global economy». However, the key to addressing our current situation is to recognise the far more serious imbalances between our insatiable hunger for energy, its finite nature and the environmental pollution in its use.

Energy is the lifeblood of any economy. Our exponential debt-based money system is in turn based on exponentially increasing energy supplies. It is therefore clear that the supply of that energy deserves our very highest attention. That this attention doesn’t appear in the Academy’s analysis is deeply worrying.

Global Witness (2009): Heads in the Sand: Governments Ignore the Oil Supply Crunch and Threaten the Climate

Global Witness (2009): Heads in the Sand: Governments Ignore the Oil Supply Crunch and Threaten the Climate

This report argues that governments have failed to acknowledge a looming oil supply crunch. Their collective failure means we have lost a decade in which action could have been taken. Recognition of the oil supply crunch would also have injected a sense of urgency and increased ambition into climate change negotiations.

TERTZAKIAN, PETER (2008): A Thousand Barrels a Second: The Coming Oil Break Point and the Challenges Facing an Energy Dependent World

TERTZAKIAN, PETER (2008): A Thousand Barrels a Second: The Coming Oil Break Point and the Challenges Facing an Energy Dependent World

In A Thousand Barrels a Second, Chief Energy Economist of ARC Financial Peter Tertzakian examines the future of oil and offers insights into what it will take to rebalance our energy needs and seize new opportunities. He answers the top questions asked by business leaders, policy makers, investors, and concerned citizens as we approach the coming break point:

  • Are today’s high oil and gas prices part of a routine business cycle, or are there more profound forces at play?
  • Are hybrid vehicles our only solution against high gasoline prices?
  • Is China’s growing thirst for energy sustainable?
  • Which government policies work and which do not?
  • Will nuclear power and coal save the day-again?

Tertzakian also offers a realistic, informed look into the future of our energy supply chains and how our consumption patterns may evolve, revealing how governments, businesses, and even individuals can meet the coming challenges with better solutions and innovations.
