We're looking forward to getting together and working on this planning exercise together. What better person to lead it that our QLD leader of the Association for the Study of Peak Oil and Gas.
This week has seen the global financial world tremble as the US Fed considered whether or not to raise interest rates. The scenario planning that we are doing for an oil supply crisis could equally have been done around the topic of financial crises. Let's work together to refine the model of how we develop these plans, and what they need to involve.
And let's share a meal and good fellowship together. And hopefully meet with some of our new members.
All the best,
Sunday 20th September, 5:30pm. Transition The Grove Community Meeting for September
Topic: Planning your response to a national oil supply crisis
Location: Wally Wight's, Enoggera.
Australia is very dependent on oil for transport and food supply, yet we have as little as three days' supply 'in country', and import our oil via refineries in Singapore. We could be cut off by a tanker sinking or an international blockade.
What would you do? Studies of crises and disasters show clearly that having a plan that you have practiced in advance is critical for survival.
Let's plan this together. What signs of a coming crisis should we be alert to? What should be our immediate response? What should be our longer term planning? How can we work together?
As usual, we'll share a pot luck dinner as part of the meeting, and finish in time to be home for favorite TV programs and an early night.
