Those of us who live in Queensland may have noticed the front page of the Courier Mail last Saturday (September 15). The headline "Crude Shock" may have captured a few people's attention. New Minister for Sustainability Andrew McNamara had called for a report into peak oil and the impact it will have on Queensland in particular. The report was then leaked to the media and hit the Courier Mail on Saturday morning.
Nice to see peak oil making the mainstream media.

Over the next few posts I'll try to explain peak oil and permaculture. How the two fit together and how one provides solutions to the other (that is permaculture provides solutions to peak oil - just to get that clear).
