Towards oil resilience

Andrew McNamara, Queensland Government

Queensland has a choice. We can either plan for an oil restricted world or we can become victims of the global market. With an oil-resilience strategy, Queensland has the opportunity to set its own future. We must get ahead of the game by designing how we live and move around in an oil-constrained world. (Foreward to an online paper from Australia. McNamara is the Queensland Minister for Suatainability, Climate Change and Innovation.)

Preparing Australian aviation for a new world

Geoff Dixon, QANTAS

Geoff Dixon of QANTAS Airlines is the first CEO of a major Australian company to publicly discuss the taboo subject of peak oil. He writes: "The global aviation industry faces, not a shock or a blip - not even a crisis - but a permanent transformation. The drivers of this transformation will be globalisation, accelerated by permanently high fuel prices. And the result will be a new aviation world order."
