Local Goverment in a Time of Peak Oil and Climate Change

Missing Attachment

Many responses to peak oil urge individual and community solutions, ignoring government.  They argue that since government hasn’t done anything to address the problem, citizens and businesses must take matters into their own hands.  Some even argue that government is part of the problem, particularly federal and state governments.

This attitude is shortsighted.
