I’ve re-organized the categories to be more straight forward.
Now all news, interviews, commentaries from outside sources, will go in the category Currents of the Peak.
All items that are general commentaries will go into A View from the Peak. This will be the main focus of the blog from now on, in other words, if it’s a story about a specific news item, it will go in Currents, if it’s a general commentary, it will go in A View…
Reviews and Moving Past the Peak: Tips and Tricks will remain unchanged.
Since we’re now entering into the decline phase of global peak oil (and many other raw materials) production, there’s no real point in pretending that an economic grind down event is separate from oil price spikes and other raw material instabilities.
Also, I’ll probably start to add more background commentary, and less posting of news items, interviews, etc, which you can find great sources for on sites like www.theoildrum.com and www.energbulletin.net which both have good news overviews in general, drumbeat is especially useful.
And of course, see the right-hand column for more useful, and specialized links.
But from now on, it’s just going to be one long downhill roller coaster ride, with occasional severe dips and bumps, so there’s no particular point in presenting overly granular breakdowns of individual news events.
I will try to present more overviews, and will try to tie things together a bit for readers who might find their way here.
Best of luck to you in the future, but don’t expect the present or past to reproduce, it’s just not in the cards, this is a new event, and the models that can help us are models of smaller scale collapses. Stay out of debt, that’s the best advice at this point, live within your means, whatever you may feel you are entitled to have, what you can afford is what you actually should have today.
