Peak Oil: It Is Here Now
The President talked about peak oil in his national address without mentioning it by name. Oil companies are drilling miles below the ocean surface for oil because all the cheap, easy to get oil has already been drilled or is being drilled. The BP disaster represents only the beginning of what a Peak Oil world is going to bring.
If anything good can come from this tragedy, may it serve as a catalyst to wake our country up and get us to transition to sustainable energy with the same determination and urgency we had in WWII. If you haven't heard about this funny term, now's the time to learn about Peak Oil and share this perspective on the BP spill with your friends.
