    Thanks for the excellent diary, Jerome. It's about time that people started paying attention to this issue.

    In 2002, when I was a college sophomore, I took a geology class. One day, the professor invited a guest lecturer from an oil company (I forget which one) who bluntly proclaimed that worries about oil production were all "overblown urban legends" and that there was enough oil left "to last hundreds of years." Nothing anyone said could persuade him otherwise.

    Reality is now starting to prove him wrong.
