Abstract

Enough arguments exist to be able to state that we are nearing the maximum limit of petrol extraction. This means that in the short or medium term the price of petrol of petrol will rise hopelessly in the global crisis. Determined characteristics of the Basque economy such as its energetic dependence, energetic intensity and transport of some of the most representative sectors, the supremacy of transport via road or the links of the activity of determined sectors of products whose demand is especially sensitive to the price of petrol represent a serious of threats in a scenario of energy shortage. The transcendence and imminence of the goal which we confront requires immediate collective action from the Basque society. The elaboration of a vulnerability analysis is needed, as too is a crash plan, not forgetting a transition strategy towards a post-coal society.
