I've talked about the Big Roll Overbefore (that's when demand for the world's energy outstrips supply), but now it's starting to happen. Oil prices were £46 a barrel yesterday, and are over $50 this morning.

Don't think this doesn't affect you. Sure, some of it's about politics and war, but some of it is about how we think about the earth's precious resources. Do something today that conserves energy/resources; turn of lights, don't leave the tap running when you brush your teeth, take the train or bus instead of the car.

Last winter's blackouts in New York, and energy failures in the UK weren't blips. They're the future. That's how the world's going to be from now on, and the only thing that'll change it if is individual's stop thinking it someone else/government's problem, and start beleiving it's their own.

Think about it. It's real. It's happening. It's now.
