Each week LBL (London by London) send out an email of thoughts/comments/tips etc experienced by Londoners each week to their free subscribers. These are just emailed in and people then reply. Many of the 15,642 community read it every week.

As they get hundreds of emails a week to be included I thought I might as well share it with you all. I've submitted one on PO and whether Londoners are behind the times in talking about it.

http://www.thefridayproject.co.uk/lbl/tell.php

All in all a pretty good way of getting thousands of people to think about PO all at once if we can get a few in and a few good replies.

Ok, so no replies means that none of you thought this a good idea. Well, this weeks LBL email has just arrived and the 4th item out of hundreds (i.e. near the top and bound to be read by most" is:

Quote:
Whilst many US cities (e.g. San Fran) and towns acknowledging the
imminent (or already here) peak in oil production (not running
out, just continually less available) London seems to be pretty
quiet. How much have LbLers been thinking about how this will
affect them, their jobs and communities over the next few years?
Or is London and are Londoners in danger of being well behind the
times on this one?

- Christopher


I think that was quite an effective way of putting Peak Oil in to 14,000 peoples minds.

Now, if any of you think this was a good idea then by replying to the above they will publish your thoughts and it will be there another week....just and idea.

Apathy has hit the forum (oh yes it has, oh no it hasn't).

Good idea and good work.

If its published will anyone reply? Sorry to ask dumb question but am feeling that way.

It HAS been published. Its up to the greater public to see if they want to reply. Obviously some straw man refutations would look good....and some others with a bit more info....

If no one replies then it will drift away into 14,000 email archives

Perhaps a resonse such as

"christopher, I was under the impression that everyone nowadays had heard about Peak Oil and were in the very least thinking about how it is going to effect them. Perhaps I'm wrong and it's just my group of friends."

As soon as you make people think that there is something out there that most know about but they don't then they'll google....
