What happens when the oil runs out?

Peak Oil Personalities, published by Inspire Books, is a collection of biographical essays by some of those who have played - and most of whom continue to play -  a crucial role in raising awareness about the impact of Peak Oil. Compiled by Colin Campbell, a pioneering exponent of the Peak Oil concept , the book shows how the various contributors, many with direct experience in the oil industry, came to realise the importance of the issue for themselves and for society in general. It also provides a fascinating insight into how new ideas evolve and commonly meet opposition from vested interests and the so-called establishment. Read more about this fascinating and important book or purchase it online.
