Mirkarimi holds peak oil hearing

Will Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi forge ahead with recommendations in a 125-page peak oil report?

The Board of Supervisors' Government Audit and Oversight Committee is scheduled to hold a 1 p.m. hearing Thursday at City Hall, Room 250, on the peak oil task force report.

Peak oil is defined as the point in time when the maximum global production of petroleum is reached after which production will decline.

Among the report's recommendations is that The City should pursue transforming a San Francisco golf course into farmland, offer free Muni to low- income residents and quickly turn garages of homes into livable spaces.
