This is the blueprint that's governing American energy policy. It's been written into law. It has tremendous consequences and we don't know what the rest of it is and the headlines have actually distracted us from the reality of what the report actually is about. The implication from the brew-ha-ha over ANWR is that this report, this policy is actually intended, that the purpose of this policy is to diminish America's dependence on imported oil. You know, you keep hearing that if we drill in ANWR we can reduce our dependence on imported oil. Nothing is further from the truth! The exact opposite is the case. The Cheney plan is a blueprint to increased American dependency on imported oil.

The end of cheap oil is upon us. It is the real underlying reason for the US attack on Iraq. This talk helps explain why the end of cheap oil will soon be permament, not just another oil shock, and why the only long-term answer is to reduce hydrocarbon consumption radically.

we shall have to re-examine very critically the ‘planning’ of cities, the places where supposedly we will increasingly live and work - if you can even call some places in North America and Britain, and the former communist world, planned. I don’t think they are ‘planned’, but anyway there are going to be a lot of fights, not least because many of the guru planners from America, who hold Portland and Vancouver up as great marvels and models of planning, and cities of the future, believe completely in the market. But the market is actually not very good at planning. It is no more good at ‘planning’, than evolution is. Evolution doesn’t plan and by and large the market doesn’t plan either. It is not designed to do that. It is designed for the ‘efficient’ delivery of certain non-life-critical goods and services, that have high dollar ‘added’ value.
