Australia's oil vulnerability
While some predict peak oil will soon be the end of industrial society, others shrug it off as scaremongering. But if we are running out of oil, is intervention needed to mitigate the impact of peak oil – or will market forces and technological innovation be a sufficient response?
This discussion is moderated by Antony Funnell, presenter of RN's Future Tense.
From the Australian Oil Vulnerability Risk Management Conference, Brisbane June 4th 2013
The conference was very successful, and ASPO-Australia is grateful to Griffith University and Sunshine Coast Regional Council for support.
