We urgently need to have a system in place to mitigate the economic and social consequences of peak oil. I believe TEQs provide the fairest and most productive way to deal with the oil crisis and to simultaneously guarantee reductions in fossil fuel use to meet climate change targets. --John Hemming MP, Chairman, All Party Parliamentary Group on Peak Oil
TEQs have long been Green Party policy, as we believe that we need a fair and transparent system to reduce energy demand and give each person a direct connection to the carbon emissions associated with their lifestyle. The TEQs scheme would guarantee that the UK's targeted carbon reductions are actually achieved, while ensuring fair shares of available energy. --Caroline Lucas MP, Leader, Green Party of England and Wales
Whilst I am less convinced than some people about the imminence of peak oil I firmly believe, regardless of this, that tradable personal carbon allowances could make a big contribution to reducing energy consumption and therefore carbon emissions in Britain. I also believe that it is extremely urgent for Britain, and all developed countries, to move away from a fossil fuel-based economy as quickly as possible. --Tim Yeo MP, Chairman, House of Commons Energy and Climate Change Select Committee
About the Author
Dr. David Fleming (1940-2010) was one of the early whistle-blowers on peak oil's approach (in 1977) and first published on the TEQs model in 1996. His popular guide to TEQs, Energy and the Common Purpose, was first published in 2005. His life's work, Lean Logic, was published posthumously in 2011. Shaun Chamberlin joined The Lean Economy Connection as TEQs Development Director in 2006. He has been involved with the Transition Towns Network since its inception, and his book, The Transition Timeline, was published in March 2009 (Green Books). He also sits on the Council of the campaigning organisation World Development Movement. The All Party Parliamentary Group on Peak Oil was set up in July 2007 to review estimates of future oil production and consider the consequences of declining world oil production for the UK and world economy.
