Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson Promises Action on Peak Oil
I am so happy that our politicians are actually looking into these issues and making them a part of public discussion and policy.
Mayor Gregor Robertson and Coun. Andrea Reimer are promising they will make Vancouver ready for peak oil.
“We have to address peak oil,” Robertson told the Georgia Straight at City Hall. “That’s a hard reality.…I think it could end up compounding the looming challenges we face with oil supply and an economy that’s totally dependent on cheap energy right now.”
Peak oil refers to the point at which the rate of global oil production maxes out, sending the supply of the resource into an inevitable decline.
