    Oh, goody! Fresh doom from Stoneleigh on a Monday when I have a fresh cup of coffee! 😉

    Really, thanks very much for this article and the one on Unconventional oil not a game changer, nicole. I read Monbiots article and was puzzled by what he said.. these articles you wrote help answer the questions I had about his article.

    As always, Safe Travels to the TAE group,

    I’m sorry your family won’t listen to you about this, Skip. To have them just dismiss you like that must hurt. My brother will listen to me but he thinks I’m dead wrong but he doesn’t just cut me off. He makes jokes about it and the conversation turns to something else. He lives in a world of his own I think anyway. I expect him to be the one that comes to my door when it gets bad.

    But I have two other friends who have surprised me by agreeing that the world, at least the US, is sinking into a terrible depression. They might not acknolwedge the peak energy situation but they see pretty clearly what is coming in the economic realm.

    They are both depressed somewhat by the situation but not so they can’t live and function with some idea that they will get through it. One of them is quite open about what we face and has lived on the edges of poverty all her life anyway. She tell me that she’s not scared cause she’s been there before!

    I think people are so polarized angry and frightened that they can’t face the probabilities of collapse. I can hardly blame them.

    peace, Shamba
