Looks like that is a bailout. Perhaps we should postpone but also publish it on the general area once we have agreed a date as I'm sure there are plenty of people in London who read the forums but don't look at the regional bits all that often....

The only way I can see that the governments target of 40% renewables is going to be reached is if the capacity is reduced - Gas shortages close down the 30% gas plants, Nuclear cliff closes down the 30% nuclear plants and the coal plants are shut in. The current 3% from renewables and 5% from France...

Current housing stock, I mean not new build. With 20 odd million houses already with an expected lifespan of 1000 years and most of them in bad shape I'm happy to leave the jazzy new builds to green architects and concentrate on sorting these out. AEES is the course I am going to do. Thanks for the ...

Carter is a member of the Institute of Public Affairs. http://sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=Institute_of_Public_Affairs Video kept crashing when I was watching so not sure if he mentioned this. If he didn't or did and didn't explain it properly then I think we can move on and waste some time on so...

I agree that the possibility of the UK production going above 3mbpd is extremely small but it is not analogous to an apple jumping back into the tree. As far as I am aware, we know of no logical way that an apple will move against the force of gravity and empically it has never happened, we can ther...

A proven fact takes a lot more than 10 years of post production decline in the UK (see Russia). Does this mean that I don't think the UK and US have peak, no of course not - because where things cannot be proven beyond doubt we rely on common sense and logic based on empirical observations etc. Russ...

Rubbish on a number of levels: Firstly, you have allowed your view of "theory" to be tarnished by Creationists. We still refer to evolutionary theory, theory of relativit etc. There is nothing wrong with the word theory. Secondly, Peak Oil, although sensible and extremely probable is not a...

Chris Peak Oil theory is not purely an observation. Observations can lead to many conclusions depending on where you are standing and how you want to observe. They also need to become put into a hypothesis to explain them and then a methodology for prediction - even if that methodology is purely &qu...
