Love in the
Time of Peak Oil: An optimistic look at energy catastrophe
multi-media show, unplugged music, beautiful food, bar open
If the world’s petroleum production hasn’t already peaked, it will
soon. Presented by the Pittwater Offshore Sustainability Group, we’ll
be doing for Peak Oil what Al Gore did for melting icecaps. In an
entertaining and sometimes direful session, we’ll take a look at
exactly what Peak Oil might mean for Pittwater and its offshore
communities (oh, and for humanity too). You’ll be updated with the
absolute latest info on what’s left, who’ll get it and what will happen
for the rest of us, as well as answers to all those questions you’ve
been dying to ask, like;
What’s so special about oil anyway? How dumb is BP? Where are all the
corn-fed cars? Should I opt for that driving holiday now and walk the
as well as a few more practical questions; As petrol prices rise, what
will happen to grocery and other prices? What are the most likely
energy alternatives that we can turn to? What could the new economies
look like? What can we do about it? Have your say!
Most importantly the bar will be open (no byo please). There’ll be
beautiful organic food sourced and prepared by the amazing Lisa
MacDonald (a $10 door charge includes the food!). Live ‘unplugged’
music by the Flaming Doghouse. There’ll also be an update from Greg
Roberts on the Offshore Vision and a short screening of the film In
Transition 1.0 about the community-based Transition initiatives that
are taking off in the UK and around the world.

to live in a more sustainable way. The concept of transition is about
understanding the twin challenges of climate change and resource
depletion, and responding to that as a community.
This ‘Peak Oil event’ is just one way we’d like to get the ball rolling
in our offshore community.
Presented in conjunction with Island Thinking, and the 2010 Scotland
Island Festival. All bar proceeds to the Scotland Island Kindy.
