Peak Oil is under discussion at the Frontline Club in London tonight. With oil prices more volatile than ever, will the oil crisis soon surpass the financial crisis as the world’s most pressing concern? We’ll be debating the issues with a panel of experts Tues 3 Feb at 7pm GMT / 11am PST. If you can’t make it to the club in person, please join us online on the Frontline Club live channel,

While the world economic crisis has significantly slowed down global oil consumption and sent prices plummeting to an all-time low, is there now a danger that we are no longer feeling the urgency to address the situation as we should be? Does a solution really depend on the ability of the market to adjust? And are we investing enough time and resources in looking for viable alternatives? And if oil prices do shoot up again, and gas-rich Russia, Saudi Arabia, Venezuela and Iran become increasingly powerful, what are the implications for the new world order? link

Taking part in the discussion will be Jeremy Leggett, environmentalist and journalist, Chris Skrebowski, from the Petroleum Review, Dr. Leo Drollas of CGES and Simon Taylor, from Global Witness.
