2002 67,168

It is significant, I think, to note that the oil price spike of a few years ago was the first world wide oil price spike NOT accompanied by reduction in production. First time in history. Not many people know that.

We are no where near running out of oil, as reserves are still plentiful. But it does appear that much of the low growing fruit has been picked . It may well be next to impossible at this juncture to increase production rates world wide. Of the 98 oil producing countries, 63 are now in declining production.

The last three years have seen the Saudis putting in a plethora of new wells like mosquitos on a sunbather, and all they have been able to do is maintain current production.

Mexico's elephant field, the second largest field in the world, went into declining production two years ago.

My guess is that's where the lion share of their lobbying is going and it seems to be working. Two days ago Obama announced $8B for new nukes (which I think is a good idea).

Today's Wall Street Journal had a piece on a new "small" nuclear reactor (125 megawatts) not from GE but from little (relatively) Babcock and Wilcox. It's a 15ft diameter cylinder. The completed reactor gets delivered on a rail car and the whole thing is dropped in a hole and buried. It even has room to store all of the spent fuel it generates during it's lifetime. Cool! (and the stock is up 5% today).

I also realize I made an error on my previous LED savings calculation (damn arithmetic). It's $750/year savings instead of $250. That covers the single malt scotch for this winter.

Why would you not want to be part of this consensus?

CRU climate scientists 'did not withold data'
BBC News - CRU climate scientists 'did not withold data'

Independent Climate Change Email Review found nothing in the e-mails to undermine Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports.

This is the third and most comprehensive review into the CRU issue, and has reached similar conclusions to the previous two.

Dutch review backs UN climate panel report
BBC News - Dutch review backs UN climate panel report

A review commissioned by the Dutch government into the IPCC's projections of climate impacts found "no errors that would undermine the main conclusions" - that man-made climate change poses a significant threat in many regions of the world.

As I said, it has been cooling for the last 10 years while co2 has cointinued to climb rapidly. All the GW scientists said 10 years ago we would be 2 to 4 degrees warmer by 2010 according to their climate models. All their climate models were wrong then and they are wrong now.

By all means, let's ignore globalwarming and deny it is happening and whether we might be making it happen more than usual.

There's no recent data on record since 2000, sure. Except "Lastly, seven of the eight warmest years on record have occurred since 2001 and the 10 warmest years have all occurred since 1995." from scurious sources [sic] like the US NWS at NOAA | NESDIS | NCDC | Frequently Asked Questions


Global warming SHOULD be ignored. It'll help thin the herd, and that's a good thing.

I work for B&W. We spun off from McDermott back in July and we trade as BWC.

A preliminary flood projection issued Monday said there's a one-in-10 chance Manitoba could see flooding on the scale of the so-called "Flood of the Century" in 1997.

You would enjoy our breakfast table discussion. My wife's a Darwinian biologist (not many other types, really...) and I'm a herd-thinner to the point that I want airbags repealed to solve the organ donor shortage.

Seriously, some frank things are said that would make Attila the Hun gag when we get into "fix it" mode.

To be obtuse, it IS a new century. There's no rule that says natural disasters have to follow a calendar.

Of course, some may wish to debate the level of "natural" in some disasters.

I'm still recovering from Y2K.

We can't even get President Obama to quit smoking!

Climate change? Should it stay the same, as when?

How's that cure for the common cold coming?

Stop climate change?
