After a statement that strong I had to go look for some corroborating information. Al Jazeera reported Energy body wants brakes on fuel consumption. Unfortunately the original pdf of Saving Oil in a Hurry isn't currently available from the IEA's website.
However I did troll an html version out of google's cache and saved it over here.
It feels a bit strange to have ones fringe beliefs move into the mainstream, the near future looks to be quite the interesting times.
