Peak Oil Goes Mainstream and Gets an Article in the New York Times
I will be much more impressed when this issue gets the full-court treatment that it deserves, and gets an article more in the vein of the fine introduction on the LATOC homepage, but for now, this is progress. An article about peak oil and some of its adherents was in the New York Times on Saturday. There were even links to the LATOC forum, and some great books by James Kunstler (The Long Emergency, which is how I found out about PO) and Richard Heinberg (The Party's Over, which I read right after TLE). This article may not have appeared were it not for the ongoing BP debacle off the Gulf, but again, it is something.
