Welcome to Foresight For Development

Peak Oil and South Africa Part 3 of 3

Part 3 focuses on how we can respond to the challenges of Peak Oil. Jeremy Wakeford argues that our society must urgently embark on a 'sustainability mobilisation' that revolutionises our energy, transport and industrial systems, underpinned by a shift in values to reflect environmental realities. He suggests practical responses that can be taken by government, businesses and individuals. He concludes with a reminder that Peak Oil is NOW, that the impacts will intensify, and that proactive mitigation can ease the inevitable transition to sustainability.
