Peak Oil Matters

A fresh perspective on the concept of peak oil and the challenges we face

            As is still the case—unfortunately, for all of us—there remains a sizeable number of individuals, organizations, and other associations determined at all costs [literally] to preserve the primacy of fossil fuels to power us into the future. Facts: good when they can be massaged to fit the partial-truth narrative […]

Thanks again for stopping by The never-ending renovation project [complete with solar panels and additional energy conservation upgrades] is almost over – many weeks behind schedule but well-worth the delays! I will begin writing immediately after the Labor Day holiday, and will begin posting some time later in September. Enjoy the rest of the summer! […]

Thanks for checking in We’re running a bit behind schedule on major renovations to our new home, and coupled with an out-of-state graduation and other family matters occupying most of my time these days, I’m obliged to take what I hope will be my last unplanned sabbatical from posting.
