  • 1. Peak Oil Will the rate of global oil production start to decline soon? And what might this mean for WA transport planning? Transport Panel 27th March 2008 Bruce Robinson, Convenor Look out !! Something serious is looming on the radar ??? ? 1
  • 2. Hurricane Katrina New Orleans US Federal, State and local Governments were shown to be shortsighted, ill-prepared, uncaring and disorganised. Australian governments are much less organised for Peak Oil 2

  • 49. Australian Government Policy and Action Options 1: “Talk about it, Talk about it” 2. Engage people, “Participatory democracy” 3. Dismantle the "perverse policies" that subsidise heavy car use and excessive freight transport. 4. Encourage frugal use of fuel, and disadvantage profligate users. Fuel taxes should be incrementally raised to European levels to reduce usage. 5: SmartCard tradable personal fuel allocation system. A flexible mechanism for short- term oil shocks, as well for encouraging people to reduce their fuel usage.. 6. Concentrate on the psychological and social dimensions of automobile dependence, not just “technological fixes” 7. Implement nationwide "individualised marketing" travel demand management. 8. Railways, cyclepaths and public transport are better investments than more roads. 9. Give priority for remaining oil and gas supplies to food production, essential services and indigenous communities, using the Smart-Card system. 10. Review the oil vulnerability of every industry and community sector and how each may reduce their risks. 11 Promote through the United Nations an Intergovernmental Panel on Oil Depletion, and a Kyoto-like protocol to allocate equitably the declining oil among nations. An international tradable sliding scale allocation mechanism is one hypothetical option. 49
  • 50. www.ASPO-Australia.org.au Priorities First: Awareness and engagement (including in transport planning circles) Frugality Efficiency Last: Alternative fuels Failure to act NOW will prove incredibly costly Oil vulnerability assessment and risk management is an important tool The proposed Oil Vulnerability Research Network is a timely opportunity.
