According to a range of experts around the world, the peak of oil extraction may have already occurred between 2006 and 2008. It’s known as ‘peak oil’. This means that as each year goes by, there will be less oil available. The cheapest, most accessible oil reserves were extracted first. The reserves left are more difficult and expensive to access and extract.
Peak oil presents a real challenge to us as a society – oil has become such an integral part of our life that the end of abundant and cheap supply is bound to create serious disruption around the world and not least in South Gippsland. Oil is used in almost all facets of production. As well being a fuel it is the main feedstock for plastics manufacture. Its role in agriculture is crucial. In fact it underpins the stability of our economy.
Put this date in your diaries. Come along to the Foster Football Club rooms, listen, contribute and help shape our future.
