I thought it interesting that Michael Hlinka (sp?) on CBC's Metro Morning today quoted Jeff Rubin about almost all of the economic slowdowns in the 20th century being due to oil shocks - still Michael failed to address Rubin's main hypothesis which is the reason for the price spikes this time around - Peak Oil.

Between Rubin's weekly column in the Globe, Richard Heinberg's Op Ed piece in the National Post last week, and others - this is starting to get on the public's radar - but it seems to be taking almost as long as it took for the Climate Change issue to gather public attention. Unfortunately, the timelines on this issue (because we are starting so late) are quite a bit shorter. I've got my fingers crossed that people in public policy positions will wake up sooner rather tnan later.
