Wave power and Oil Peak Recession

A mixed bag of borrowed posts today:

Electricity is no 1:1 replacement for liquid fuels, but electricity is what we need in addition to liquid fuels. And with the climate change related carbon emissions cuts rolling towards us in an unrelenting way, alternatives are needed.

Big Gav at Peak Energy has a good summary post about recent developments in wave power. Go check it out.

On David Strahan's site, there's an interesting and very short interview with Robin West (PFC Energy) on current oil crunch, peak, future oil prices and the chance of big recession ahead, due to lack of oil. Very good stuff and 5 minutes well spent.
