Two items from the Independent of Note

Courtesy of National Newswatch: on the coming oil crisis,

The head of the International Energy Agency says things are getting worse:
...the first detailed assessment of more than 800 oil fields in the world, covering three quarters of global reserves, has found that most of the biggest fields have already peaked and that the rate of decline in oil production is now running at nearly twice the pace as calculated just two years ago.
And word of a renewed bout of global warming...
...there may be increased drought in Africa, India and Australia, heavier rainfall in South America and increased extremes in Britain, of warm and cold. It may make 2010 one of the hottest years on record.
