An article in The Guardian suggests that the UK government is becoming alarmed over peak oil.
Particularly of note:
The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) is also refusing to hand over policy documents about “peak oil” – the point at which oil production reaches its maximum and then declines – under the Freedom of Information (FoI) Act, despite releasing others in which it admits “secrecy around the topic is probably not good”.
I wouldn’t mind them being secretive about it if I thought that real action was being taken to shift to a less oil-based society (see the transition town movement).
