Food and peak oil

For those that haven't thought about it yet, there's an uncomforably close relationship between food and oil, as highlighted in a recent report from the Bristol Partnership's Peak Oil Report:

"For every calorie of food energy delivered, 7-10 calories of fossil fuels are used to produce it. According to a July 2008 government report, the transportation of food alone accounts for a third of the 20.6 million tonnes of oil used in the UK food chain each year"

The report quoted was the Cabinet Office's 'Food Matters'.
