We are excited to be welcoming Jeremy Leggett as this year’s keynote speaker at the SR Forum. Mr Leggett will share his views on the potentially disastrous repercussions of reaching peak oil production – a subject on which he is a world expert. Here is a snippet of his thoughts from a recent article published on The Guardian
“Today, eight British companies are warning of a ruinous oil crunch five years from now. We warn that the global peak of oil production will arrive unexpectedly early, resulting in not just a global energy crisis, but potentially the withholding of exports by oil producers and energy famine in oil-importing countries. Previously unimaginable policy interventions in financial markets have suddenly become imperative, and similar interventions in energy markets today may be worth their weight in gold tomorrow, in terms of economic and social damage avoided, especially as this would also help tackle climate change.”

Come and hear him for yourself on 15 November. Be warned! His views are not going to make you feel comfortable but there is a good reason why business leaders and government ministers around the world are taking him extremely seriously…
