  •  The WAR over unconventional fuels (11+ / 0-)

    Excellent post.  The depletion of cheaper, liquid fossil fuels is the crux - and the direct line to the battle over Keystone XL. Keystone is not an oil pipeline - it moves diluted bitumen, a dilute unconventional fuel.

    These will be the oil wars ahead - to delay and prevent the excess greenhouse gases from being unlocked from these unconventional fuels.  Keystone is the first major battle in this war.

    This is the key nexus of peak oil and climate change.
