In a state of denial

Lo and behold, while perusing today's Maine Sunday Telegram, I was greeted on the front page of the Business Sunday section by the following article, titled, "Beginning of the end for oil?", by Matt Crenson of the AP.

About a year ago, I first blogged about Peak Oil and I have continued to follow the subject with considerable interest. Periodically, the topic is broached in the media. Increasingly, it now shows up in the most mainstream of places.

It's a subject that will become increasingly important, but like most issues, won't be given much credance by the average Joe (and Josephine), content to tune out events of consequence in order to live in their world of pseudo-reality television programming.
