  6. 6. Human induced Energy Peak climate change + security + oil
  7. 7. ‘The best scientific projections indicate that we have very little time left - indeed, less than one hundred months - in which to alter our behaviour drastically. Although I wish it were otherwise, I fear we have reached the point when if we do too little, too late to tackle this problem, the consequences could be catastrophic.’
  8. 8. ‘Can nine billion people be fed? Can we cope with the demands in the future on water? Can we provide enough energy? Can we do it, all that, while mitigating and adapting to climate change? And can we do all that in 21 years time? That's when these things are going to start hitting in a really big way. We need to act now. We need investment in science and technology, and all the other ways of treating very seriously these major problems. 2030 is not very far away.’ Professor Sir John Beddington 19th March 2009, London
  9. 9. <It’s the delivery stupid!>
  10. 10. "Regardless of which route we choose, the world's current predicament limits our maneuvering room. We are experiencing a step-change in the growth rate of energy demand due to population growth and economic development, and Shell estimates that after 2015 supplies of easy-to-access oil and gas will no longer keep up with demand." Jeroen van der Veer, CEO Shell 28th January 2008
  11. 11. Climate Change Act Targets • 1990 baseline of CO2 emissions was approximately 590 million tons of CO2. • An 80% reduction is based on the minimum reductions necessary to avoid causing catastrophic and permanent changes to the climate • 80% of 590m tons = 118 million tonnes. • The UK level of CO2 emissions (1.76 tonnes/capita cf. ~10 tonnes today) hasn’t been that low since…… when?
