On Peak Oil:
ASPO – Association for the Study of Peak Oil -Source of much data & inspiration and where Peak Oil awareness started.
The Hirsch Report – produced for the US government in 2005. Was almost lost until it gained prominence in 2006. Remarkable for the unequivocal call to urgent action in order to mitigate the effects of Peak Oil.
