Price here just JUMPED to $1.60. I had been paying $1.35.

Lousy oil market manipulators, causing the price of oil to be greater than $0!!
We pay five times as much.

I hope you do a 2020 milestones as well. This post from Reuters shows a lot of data about how shale has benefited a lot of rural counties. One has to be rather jealous of a man who gets, or rather used to get, more than $100,000 per month in royalties from oil extraction from his land. Sadly, in th...

Seems a bit of a rant from someone who is not Michael Moore and not nearly as funny as him. I am not even sure what role Moore had in this documentary.
Executive producer.

I see Powerswitch as much more then just a "peak oil" website. I do as well. It took me watching them for awhile before realizing that the hymnals being used aren't about the gospel of peak oil. All forms of energy are discussed here along with a host of other issues from politics to perm...

It's a strange old forum this one.... Frustration at being trapped in a peak oil website when what you REALLY want is just run-o-the-mill doom mongering. Climate change got shuffled off to a back burner pretty quick when the chance for global pandemic doom swam into view. This thread is like..LEGIO...

Meanwhile, if folks could just possibly manage to hold off, just for a second, on the supercilious, but essentially vacuous sneering and usual implication of anyone not following the line being either stupid or immoral..... This place was once a peak oil hideaway Steve....where were you when this w...

For your needs I think a quality 22LR might be best, you will definitely find a competitive class to shoot in. Save the HMR for small game or for shooting in areas where a round very unlikely to pass-through is an advantage, like taking rabbits out from a sheep field. My hunting days are mostly beh...

Personal limits meaning that is enough for personal use, or any more and you face arrest and possible imprisonment?
