Fuel price report too middle of the road
We listened carefully to your reporting of fuel price rises and those you talked to and concluded that it was too middle of the road. Balanced reporting is required on this most serious issue.

We need a paradigm shift and that should have been discussed for a balanced picture. We are fossil fuel addicted and need to be weaned off oil. Why you might ask? The Association of Scientists For Peak Oil has been warning us for years that oil is about to peak. Top enery investment banker Matt Simmons and others tell us oil demand is a runaway train. Demand is outstripping supply.
We are a monolithic fuel based culture and the party is over for us. We suggest that people get used to taking the bicycle or walking to the dairy instead of driving the hatchback. And as I think about it, plastic will also be in short supply along with hundreds of other bi-products. Time to get serious people.
