Personal readiness is going: Professional Association is not

My question is about how to prepare the associations with which we are a part of.  I am part of a teacher association which has control over its own retirement plan, health care and insurance.  It is also a professional association dealing with professional issues in education.  It dialogues with school boards and the provincial education ministry.  I would like to make a presentation to this association in regards to Peak Oil and how it will affect the retirement plans, negotiations with the province and any other monetary plan that we have control of.  Most of tha

Change in listing of oil imports

I use I cannot remember what the former listing for crude was but I know it is not what is currently listed on that site. Crude was listed as a single listing under one name. Now it is listed under two names. One is WTI or West Texas Index and the other is Brent Crude. I was just curious as to why the sudden change. Are we now longer buying from OPEC?
