The Global Oil-Production Peak

James Howard Kunstler details the implications of the global oil-production peak in a new book entitled The Long Emergency. Rolling Stone has an excerpt that is very definitely worth reading if you don't mind having your day ruined. (Of course, if petroleum problems can ruin your day and you already know that oil prices reached another all-time high yesterday, then perhaps you might as well go ahead and read Kunstler's article.)
