Government Keeping A Lid On This One, I Wonder Why?

Recommended Posts

The Guardian - 22/08/10

Speculation that government ministers are far more concerned about a future supply crunch than they have admitted has been fuelled by the revelation that they are canvassing views from industry and the scientific community about "peak oil".

The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) is also refusing to hand over policy documents about "peak oil" – the point at which oil production reaches its maximum and then declines – under the Freedom of Information (FoI) Act, despite releasing others in which it admits "secrecy around the topic is probably not good".

Why don't we combine those and have a policy of shrinking ourselves?

You might think it's a silly idea now. B)

We'd have to get rid of all the cats first <_<

I did about 3 years ago - it is down about 90 percent.

They have some long term fixed deal on coal prices which means buying into UK coal is effectively buying into commerical property. (Though do not quote me...)

The UK Coal authority published a report a few years ago that went to great lengths to explain UK coal reserves currently under our feet would last no longer than about 15 years if the mines were opened back up....... :(:(

It's only 7 years or so (reserves:production ratio) What part of this production curve do people not understand?

That's usually a good sign. (Unless you are the Roman[iNSERT] empire.)

To true, its all about supply and demand, Te hee

Before the miners strike the miners were being took their mines had 50 years to live, then Magie comes along and see,s cheap coal from china and austrailia and shuts all our self dependancy, Then China and Austrailia decides they need their coal so decide to fxxk UK and keep it themselfs, whats next ?.

The coal that was used to break the miners' strike came from Poland - at the time a communist country. They were happy to export coal to us to make sure their socialist brothers did not succeed. Funny old world really.

Gotta keep those TV's on so Auntie can sooth us with messages of "STAY CALM", subtitled "Don't blame the government".
