Oil Shock Horror blog -- the story thus far

Follow denistegg on Twitter

9 months after a tentative start last September, and with 45 posts clocked up here at Oil Shock Horror Probe, I thought it was time to re-cap. What are the trends and themes that have emerged so far?

It's the economy stupid
Higher oil prices are already negatively impacting our economy

Our oil import dependency puts New Zealand at huge risk

Evidence of peak oil is overwhelming

But New Zealand government has ears, eyes and lips firmly closed

NZ Media also ignores peak oil
in spite of widespread coverage of peak oil in overseas media,  in a must watch Australian TV documentary , the New Zealand media continues to ignore peak oil (with a few notable exceptions)
