Futureshock – The End of Oil

Eine im Internet frei verfügbare TV-Doku über Peak Oil und die Konsequenzen für Irland:

Ireland has grown increasingly dependent on oil to fuel its economic growth – with consumption per capita rising by more than 50% in the past 15 years. Some of this higher level of dependence is inevitable given the island nature of our economy. Some, however, is a matter of choice, and generally Ireland has chosen to adopt patterns of energy usage that are oil intensive, such as transportation and electricity production.

Nevertheless, oil consumption is not confined to transportation in Ireland. Electricity production also relies on oil for a significant share of generation, and again Ireland is comparatively more dependent on oil for electricity generation than most other EU economies.
