Greetings from Owen Law and welcome to the new Dragon Line blog site!

I’ve decided to make the switch to using Word Press software and its working out pretty well!  The site has been fully revamped as well. I’d definitely be interested in some feedback.

Anyway, to kick things off I’ve started the first blog post with a link to an article about Peak Oil and Climate Change.

The article is actually a post of an article by Greg Grochola on ‘The  Zeitgeist is Changing’ blog by Dr Robert Muller (taken from EzineArticles). The site itself argues that capitalism is currently facing its biggest challenge given the pressures of the environment, society and the economy. As a result of this, a new model of economic development needs to be found urgently.

The article, more specifically, argues against the futility of huge investment in geo-engineering approaches (that could harm the fragility of the earth) and also carbon-intensive fossil fuel based sources with the onset of Peak Oil and Climate Change. All this will do is serve to increase the rate of CO2 emissions and hasten the arrival of climate change (as well as leave a legacy of fossil fuel depletion for future generations). It further argues that everyone has their part to play in off-setting fossil fuel depletion and thus helping to combat climate change. Click on the link below to read it and let me know what you think.

About Owen Law

My pen-name is ‘Owen Law’ (real name: Nicholas Davies.) I’m a science fiction writer specialising in dystopian/apocalyptic visions of the future. I’m from Shropshire, England (on the borders with Wales) and I’m in my forties. I have a background in public services and training. I’ve been working on my first novel, Dragon Line, since 2008. I’ve also written several short stories, one of which you can find on this blog (‘Matilda Leviathan‘). I now reside on the border of Shropshire and Wales, and my interests include writing (of course!), current affairs and environmental issues.
