Dr Strangelove, or How I learned to stop worrying and love peak oil.

Okay, I'm totally kidding. Peak oil is a serious problem, and one that I believe looms in front of us in the near future.

However, through a combination of conservation, lifestyle adjustments, and the increased use of alternatives, I think humanity will figure out a way to cope with this problem. Natural gas looks promising as something to help mitigate the problem. I worry there's a bit of overpromise here, but we'll see.

In the meanwhile, personally, I've put other items on my front burner.

So, as Douglas Adams once put it.. "So long.. and thanks for all the fish."
