Peak Oil: Bring it on?

Off to the coast this weekend, if we can get off our arses, and missing the talkfest across the lake. Leave you with this thought. We’ve all heard of peak oil, seen the movies, wondered if it might actually make redundant efforts to avert climate change (as the world’s economy collapses). But have you heard about what happened to Cuba’s agricultural sector when subsidised imports of Soviet oil dried up? Sure it was bad for a while, but they managed to get back to a reasonable level of production using some pretty innovative methods, not least leasing government land in cities for urban food gardens.
