SP at The Oil Drum ANZ has completed his series of posts on the special edition of The Australian Planner (Vol 47:4) which looked at planning responses to peak oil - Public Planning and Policy Post Petroleum – PIA Finale.
This is the final in my series of rough reviews of the special edition of The Australian Planner (Vol 47:4).
To recap, the first few articles (The Shorter PIA – Australian Oil Vulnerability, Shorter PIA NO. 2) summarized the current position of Australian cities and used scenarios to explore the likely impacts of oil depletion. Later articles explored the possible role of cycling (Cycling over the peak - PIA NO.3), the effect of oil depletion and urban development on children, mobility and society (Where do the children play? PIA NO. 4) and the role of planning and governance at all political levels (Transurbanization – PIA NO.5).
The first paper below picks up the story from an earlier article (Petroleum depletion scenarios for Australian cities).
