I didn't realise he was a pilot too. That's what I call multi-tasking.

Who's still denying the energy crunch and Peak oil now?

Thanks for the links. There's a link to the Peak Oil group in the ft.com link. A stupid bunch of TFHers I hear you say? No - a group of British companies. Amongst them Scottish and Southern Energy, SolarCentury and Virgin.

The UK Industry Taskforce on Peak Oil and Energy Security (ITPOES) is a group of British companies concerned that threats to energy security are not receiving the attention they merit.

The Industry Taskforce on Peak Oil and Energy Security

The aim of our first report is to engage government more proactively on the peak oil threat, and also to alert the public to the problem. We aim to encourage collaborative contingency planning by government, industry, and communities on measures that can be taken to accelerate independent energy supply within the UK.

Here's a link I saved a while back, but it's specific to oil consumption in the US:

http://www.energybulletin.net/node/281

In the United States, 400 gallons of oil equivalents are expended annually to feed each American (as of data provided in 1994).7 Agricultural energy consumption is broken down as follows:

· 31% for the manufacture of inorganic fertilizer

· 19% for the operation of field machinery

· 16% for transportation

· 13% for irrigation

· 8% for raising livestock (not including livestock feed)

· 5% for crop drying

· 5% for pesticide production

· 8% miscellaneous8

Energy costs for packaging, refrigeration, transportation to retail outlets, and household cooking are not considered in these figures.
