This book is not an introduction to the subject of Peak Oil; several existing volumes serve that function (including my own The Party's Over: Oil, War and the Fate of Industrial Societies). Instead it addresses the social and historical context in which the event is occurring, and explores how we can reorganize our thinking and action in several critical areas in order to better navigate this perilous time.

Richard Heinberg's Museletter- The View From Oil's Peak

How near is the global peak? Today the majority of oil-producing nations are seeing reduced output: in 2006, BP’s Statistical Review of World Energy reported declines in 27 of the 51 producing nations listed. In some instances, these declines will be temporary and are occurring because of lack of investment in production technology or domestic political problems. But in most instances the decline results from factors of geology: while older oil fields continue to yield crude, beyond a certain point it becomes impossible to maintain maximum flow rates by any available means. And so as years go by there are fewer nations in the category of oil exporters and more nations in the category of oil importers.

Local-global-cosmic. The start of a new year always seems to be a time for reflection and prediction. Mayors Gramson, Williams, Van Dusen and Larsen of Warrenton, Cannon Beach, Astoria and Seaside -- and City Manager Jerry Taylor of Manzanita join us in examining local trends. Richard Heinberg makes a personal visit by phone from California addressing national and international trends. And, then we "sail into uncharted waters" and talk with a student of behavioral psychology-turned-astrologer Bill Herbst for the cosmic perspective on the first decade of the 21st Century.

Green architect, author, economist, feng shui-ist and local legend Tom Bender recounting his recent essay, "Oh, NO! We've Been Elected!" Connecting the dots between global warming and peak oil, and peak oil and culture, Tom draws on his own award-winning "Factor 10 Economics" for solutions to the question, "What can I do?" Putting Spirituality back into the equation is a good start, and Tom leaves us with a sense that this is going to be an exciting adventure in which we can all take part.
