The Gulf of Mexico oil blowout carries the emotional wallop and learning potential of a near-death experience. First, it certifies that the age of cheap and plentiful oil is over. Second, it reveals that our collective faith in technology to overcome any challenge posed by nature is a dangerous delusion.  Third, it may be the event that sets our nation on the path to genuine economic and ecological sustainability. To understand why the age of cheap and plentiful oil is over we must ask why BP was drilling for oil in a foreboding environment. The answer has two parts: 1) the giant deposits of easy to reach oil on land have been ...
is reached, after which the rate of production enters terminal decline. This concept is based on the observed production rates of individual oil wells, and the combined production rate of a field of related oil wells. The aggregate production rate from an oil field over time usually grows exponentially until the rate peaks and then declines—sometimes rapidly—until the field is depleted. This concept is derived from the Hubbert curve , and has been shown to be applicable to the sum of a nation’s domestic production rate, and is similarly applied to the global rate of petroleum production. Peak oil is often confused with oil depletion

(MM), I recalled a healthcare consultant who told me, “You really should market peak oil, but you’ve got to give folks some good news to win them over.” I laughed and replied, “Are you kidding? I’m not selling whiter teeth.” Turning serious, I went on, “Most people react by saying, ‘This just can’t be true.’ They think scientists will invent a cheap and endless supply of energy and we’ll live happily ever after. And if you try to tell them about thermodynamics and ecological limits, they tune out or say, ‘but Tom Friedman says….’ So I see no way into most heads except through crisis.” As I write this review a wave of graduate ... market research, surveys and trends

"On Tigger's back! And Tiggers can't climb downwards, because their tails get in the way, only upwards, and Tigger forgot about that when we started, and he's only just remembered. So we've got to stay here for ever and ever - unless we go higher. What did you say, Tigger? Oh, Tigger says if we go higher we shan't be able to see Piglet's house so well, so we're going to stop here." -AA Milne, "The House At Pooh Corner" Note: I wrote this essay several years ago, and have been thinking about it a lot in relationship to the BP problem, so I thought it was worth a rerun.

Saudi Arabia Says Peak Demand for Oil Is an 'Alarm' (Update2 ...
Feb. 15 (Bloomberg) -- Saudi Arabia must be “very serious” about any possible peak in oil demand, which is an “alarm” for OPEC’s biggest exporter to diversify its economy, a Saudi Oil Ministry adviser said. Saudi Arabia is making a push into renewable energy and is starting its first carbon-capture project, Oil Ministry adviser Mohammad al-Sabban said today at the Jeddah Economic Forum. The country will start injecting carbon dioxide into Ghawar, the world’s largest oilfield, in 2012, he said. “Talk of oil demand peaking is an alarm to speed up the economic diversification ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Meeting the Challenge of Peak Oil with Sustainable Agriculture
Higher prices for gasoline and other fossil fuels have renewed public interest in alternative sources of renewable energy, including wind, water, photovoltaic, and bio-fuels. Energy prices in 2005 were due in part to unpredictable events, such as hurricane Katrina, but the approaching peak in global oil production makes even higher energy prices both predictable and inevitable. Peak oil is a concept based on the premise that peaks in oil production occur when approximately half of the total amount of oil in a particular oil field has been extracted, which typically occurs some 30-40 years after the initial discovery. ...

This is probably useless to your question, but I'll offer it up anyway. I used to work pretty closely with an architect who had wonderful conceptual ideas. We shared some similar stylistic interest in shape and style and content. I bemoaned the fact that after all these years in construction I've never really built anything interesting. Everything is always so utilitarian, or if it has any style at all it's derivative. We dreamed up an office park where aesthetics had real importance, where none of the buildings could look like the others, where the way things looked mattered. posted January 8, 2008 Fitness ...

Damn people dont get all bent out of shape! I have some stock I am going to sell anyway and this week it went up 10%, that is the only reason I am asking. 3 years ago I think it will be weak until one of two important events. 1) Some of the big brokerages will report earnings. 2) The Fed will cut rates either 25 bps or 50 bps. The only sure thing here is that the market will go up big if we get a 50 bps cut.
