British Government starts facing up to Peak Oil

(© TebNad –

Now this an interesting article! The coalition government here in the UK has decided to recognise Peak Oil as a problem, stating that oil supply is likely to be unable to meet demand within as little as five years. A different approach from the fictional UK government in the Dragon Line Prologue below then? Maybe, but then again – as the article says – there is a world of difference between looking at the issue and actually doing something about it. We shall see!

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.
