ASPO 5. Jeremy Leggett Intertwines Peak Oil and Climate Change.
**Jeremy Leggett. Peak Oil, climate change, and the daunting arithmetic of carbon fuels.**
*Leggett told it like it is, and convincingly and with great urgency weaved the argument that peak oil and climate change are in fact, two sides of the same problem. You can see the Powerpoint of his talk [here](http://www.aspoitalia.net/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=113&Itemid=90″Leggettppt”).*
“This talk will look at peak oil in the context of climate change, the conflagration of two huge problems, what we might think of as the Two Great Oversights of our times. They are certainly the two biggest problems we fact, and they have an interesting set of comparisons. The biggest single difference is that excepting the USA, there is pretty much a consensus on climate change now, whereas peak oil is still a minority view, although it is certainly less so thanks to the work of ASPO. It has moved from being a hobbyist issue to a more general one.
