free html hit counter Peak Oil Debunked: May 2009

Sunday, May 17, 2009


After about 5 years of posting on this topic, I've decided to take a vacation due to peak oil burnout. Life is short, and I'd like to do some interesting things besides the day-to-day grind of the peak oil community. Of late, I've found little to stimulate my interest in the peak oil media, and in fact, I find peak oil commentary to be mind-numbingly boring and repetitive. How many Kunstler or Heinberg screeds do you really need to read? They're all the same. Endless rehash of the same leftovers, day after day, like dogfood...

Just to be clear: I'm not taking time off because "the world is falling apart" or any other doomer nonsense. In fact, I find it amazing how little impact "peak everything" has on my daily life. My firm conviction, as always, is that peak oil will occur in extreme slow-motion, and that's why it will be fairly easy to weather and adapt to. It's also why it's a little silly to follow it obsessively on a daily basis.

Anyway, thanks to all my staunch readers for your support. I'll be back, just not as often, so I hope you'll pop in from time to time.

I'll leave this thread open to post ideas, news or suggestions for other sites debunkers might enjoy.
