I move:

That the Senate—
that the Marrickville Council in Sydney has adopted the Oil Depletion Protocol which seeks to address the impact of peak oil by steadily reducing oil usage, and
the council will reduce its oil usage by 3 per cent per year; and
calls on the Government:
to adopt the Oil Depletion Protocol to reduce Australia’s dependence on oil and ensure an orderly restructure of the economy and society for the post-oil era, and
encourage state and local governments to adopt the protocol and reduce oil usage.

Question negatived.
