UK oil output falls 10%

Not good news for Britain, though it might at least force them to move towards alternative energy more quickly:
Oil production from, the UK Continental Shelf in the third quarter last year fell by 10% despite a total of seven new fields being brought onstream, providing further evidence that the UK can no longer rely on output from the North Sea.
From here, via Mega in this iTulip thread. I presume Norway is in the same boat, since they're on the North Sea as well. In any case, we can expect to see a lot more of this in the near future.

Remember when the notion of 'Peak Oil' was deemed by some opinion makers as nothing but sensationalistic hogwash? Hmm, guess the Brits are finding out that it is hogwash no more!
