"An Army of Mechanical Slaves"

Congressman Roscoe Barlett's latest speech on peak oil and our energy future is well worth reading. You can find it by CLICKING HERE. If you have a link to the charts he was using, please email it to me and I'll update this post.

Shale oil ... renewables ... nuclear ... Roscoe has it all covered. Fascinating stuff.

The headline I used for this post, "an army of mechanical slaves," is his description for what fossil fuels has given all of us. I like this quote too: "Three hundred years, the age of oil, it will be but a blip in the history of man."
