James Kunstler has popped up on the local national youth radio network to talk about peak oil and "The Long Emergency" - nothing new here but he speaks well (and notes he doesn't think he deserves to be called apocalyptic, though he doesn't mention apocaphilia).
They also talk to Sonia Shar, author of "Crude", local science pundit Dr Karl Kruszelnicki and Queensland state MP Andrew McNamara (Listen).
This half hour special looks at a topic that's crucial to the future of the planet - the future of oil supplies. Peak oil is when the world's oil supplies reach the peak of production. Many people are arguing we're there now, and that production is in decline. This will have a major impact on the economies of the world. Some people argue that it could lead us into recession and political instability.
