This video has recently been produced by The Nation Magazine as a feature on the twin emerging problems of Peak Oil and Climate Change (and therefore highly relevant to the subject matter of Dragon Line). It features such emininent voices in the field such as Noam Chomsky, Bill McKibben and James Howard Kunstler (the writer of the Long Emergency, a great influence on the back-scenario for my book.)
Basically, the presentation vouches that a great deal of concern has been vented about the detrimental effects of fossil-fuel burning on the environment. But what if the fuels themselves become scarcer?
The video is quite long (about 20 minutes), but is worth checking out!
