Arctic Wildlife Refuge, Los Angeles and Peak Oil (tags)
What's the connection between the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and Los Angeles? The answer is peak oil. President Bush wants to open up ANWR (the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge) to oil drilling and it has everything to do with the fact that we are at the global peak in oil extraction. Peak oil is the start of the age of ever declining oil extraction. This is very significant to Los Angeles because it could be argued that Los Angeles is one of the most oil-addicted places on earth - the birthplace of freeway suburbs, and home to thousands of big-box stores which carry products that traveled thousands of miles to reach us. In the article below, Kenneth Deffeyes brings to our attention the fact that the debate over ANWR is missing the big issue, the issue of peak oil. On April 10th in Venice, the Post Carbon Institute presents Options and Actions for a Post Carbon Los Angeles, with local community activists presenting projects addressing these issues.

In Los Angeles and accross the Nation, many tens-of-thousands of people saw Kucinich banners hanging on overpasses and in public places on Saturday February 7th. Kucinich volunteers took to the overpasses and other public places to get out Kucinich's message. When asked about reasons they are out on the street supporting Kucinich, volunteers refer to Kucinich's plan to get out of Iraq in 90 days, support of single-payer health care and spending more money on domestic needs rather than on military along with other important issues.
