    Please quote and reference the US military ever in the past having issuing a warning of peak oil? I'll wait.

    the cooling world, newsweek, april 28, 1975:

    "the evidence in support of these predictions has now begun to accumulate so massively that meteorologists are hard-pressed to keep up with it"

    "meteorologists disagree about the cause and extent of the cooling trend, as well as over its specific impact on local weather conditions, but they are almost unanimous in the view that the trend will reduce agricultural productivity for the rest of the century"

    a masterful post, thanks for putting it all together
    I've been hoping for a Daniels candidacy since probably about late 2009, when I first became aware of him. He seems perfectly matched to Republican and American needs in 2012. The problem is his personal history - his wife basically ran off, divorced him, and married another man years ago. Four years later, she had come back and they remarried and happily raised their four daughters. But in a campaign she would be brutalized by left-wing mud-slingers. I can understand why he wouldn't want to expose his wife to them.

    yup. then the experts were sure that we were going to overpopulate and all starve to death in the 1980's
    then the experts told us that deforestation was going to leave us all choking to death
    and now the experts are telling us that cows farting is going to cause florida to sink beneath the sea

    so.... yeah.....

    Catawaba: move the goal posts much? I couldn't care less about the military report, either. Peak Oil foolishness has been promising us scarcity since 1894 - yet our reserves keep going up.

    Nope, it says nothing about a consensus there, and no warnings from a Republican presidential task force as we've had with peak oil.

    "meteorologists disagree about the cause and extent of the cooling trend, as well as over its specific impact on local weather conditions, but they are almost unanimous in the view that the trend will reduce agricultural productivity for the rest of the century"
    That is actually the opposite of consensus, and no warnings from the US military as we have had with peak oi!

    Now why are ya'all messin' with Cat's religion? You're battling an uphill fight with his belief system on this. Much like trying to convert a radical Muslim to Christianity.

    Fine. You can do that. Just don't blame the President when the price of fuel keeps rising because of increased demand among an incredibly large number of consumers, groups of which are going to the same place anyways.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.
