I have just come across a reeeaaallllyyy cool piece of journalism on the oil industry in general, and also peak oil. It's from the Chicago Tribune, and probably the most stable link I can give you is to their Special Reports Page. Once there look for the story called "A Tank of Gas: A World of Trouble." It's quite lengthy, I don't know when I'm going to be able to watch all the documentaries and read all the stories, but it looks really well done. Has Matthew Simmons and James Kunstler on there as well.
And this - I just have to show you this. I got it off Dave's Comics Blog. I grew up reading comics, which is why I was looking through this guy's blog. The panel below is from Detective Comics 571, from 1986.
How to even comment on that?
