First Thing Every Morning

Environmental catastrophe. The best place I have found for intelligent discussion is The Oil Drum. They've collectively been thinking about Peak Oil for a long time, and seem to know what they are talking about.

An earlier post there had this image from the Minerals Management Service. 3359 active platforms. Well, 3358 now that one blew up and sank. How could there not be a disaster sooner or later. How is it only BP's fault, or the government's, and not also mine?

Withdrew the counter widget I posted a few minutes ago. Numbers for how much oil don't quite matter: 'already enough for a catastrophe' is the number.
