Shlok’s seem to have taken down his inexplicable attack on the Pickens Plan (a rather sensible plan use more natural gas and windmills, proposed by a man who almost certainly would love to sell us natural gas and windmills), but other sites are also chattering about a Post-Oil Future, where oil is no longer a hegemonic energy source. Slashdot reports that Mercedes wants to be off gas by 2015. At the same time, Scientific Blogging looks at protecting cropland in a world where corn stems are harvested to make ethanol.
Thus functions supply-and-demand, without the false hysteria of peak oil. Now that the tdaxp Plan is being implemented, things are adjusting as they should have years ago.
