Joining the Oil Drum

My inspiration for starting my own blog about local issues related to peak oil came in large part from reading and contributing to The Oil Drum. They have done an excellent job of covering the international and national level news related to Peak Oil, adding their expert commentary and perspective. Their recent coverage of the implications of Katrina for the oil industry has been absolutely stellar, providing insider information on what is really happening behind the scenes before the Mainstream Media reports on it.

I started this blog to cover local issues on transportation, energy, housing, etc from the perspective of preparing for the eventual consequences of peak oil since each community will have to adapt in different ways.

The folks over at TOD have invited me to join their new scoop website and I have gladly accepted. Over the next week I will be transitioning this blog over to

The Scoop website will allow for greater interactivity and collaboration.
This collaboration between national and local contributors all in one place will help us better share best practices and learn from each other.

I will be calling on folks from the NYC Tri-State Area to become regular contributors, particularly if you have expertise in specific areas. Stay tuned for more details.
