Are you peak oil aware

The Chinese have a saying, "we live in interesting times". Never before has there been such a conjunction of population growth, economic growth and the easy availability of cheap energy with which we in the advanced countries can employ a few hundred "virtual energy slaves" and even the poorest of us can live as Ancient Roman nobles. Add to this the geopolitics of energy and religion and these interesting times are also dangerous times.

How aware are you of the limits to our good life. Do you see a lifestyle proped up with a temporary infusion of fossil energy or is the world a kind of magic pudding which will never run out. Take this quiz to find out where you stand.
