Nothing is ever gonna fix the peak oil problem, and we honestly need to accept the fact that life as we know it is going to change in way that we cant comprehend.

This is a great thread, but I do have some questions. I've just started my investigations into the peak-oil phenomenon, and I would like to know if anyone knows some good books I can get my hands on. I've already read The Long Emergency by Kunstler and The Party's Over by Heinberg -- where do I go from there?

The Arctic Rush

A few weeks ago Shell's Kulluk rig near Alaska was damaged and now it goes to Asia for repairs. Right after the accident spearhead in US Congress demanded to prosecute inquiry on the case. But in fact this is nothing more than attempt to get rid of competitors in rush for the resources of the Arctic region. These days US Department of the Interior and US Coast Guard check activities of other non-American companies that operate in the region and likely the biggest part of them will be forced to stop their work. I work for one of these companies (I can't tell in which one for good reason) and US authorities already accused us of violating ecological and safety standards though we passed their inspections last summer... Obviously this is unfair rivalry used by American authorities and companies to get rid of more effective and experienced foreign companies while American companies violate many standards in chase of extracting resources but US authorities ignore these facts...

I read the Matthew Simmons book "Twilight in the Desert". I'll tell you dbates, that book sold me on the idea of peak oil right there. It so makes sense to look at the engineering and other scientific papers coming out of Saudi Arabia .

My friend's father is a doctor who worked for the Saudis in the late 80s. They paid him $200,000 per year, no taxes and he worked over there at King Faisal Hospital in Riyadh. Believe it or not, he was their their AIDS specialist. Anyway, he told me that even back then there were murmurrings going on among the engineers about the wells needing to be injected with water and this is now TWENTY YEARS AGO. All very sobering.
