Jeremy Leggett

on a solar century

Once Jeremy Leggett worked for an oil company but learning about the threat of peak oil turned him into an environmental campaigner. In this story Jeremy Leggett charts his professional turn about and describes the urgent case of Peak Oil and the need for the world to adapt rapidly to a shifting energy reality. That supplies of oil will peak and then decline was described by M. King Hubbert and in this fifteen minute tour de force, Leggett describes both what is happening and what we can do about it. As he says, it is not all doom and gloom for if we all come together- as was the case during the Second World War- the transition to a cleaner, greener post-oil economy is possible.
