Energy Tomorrow

I just saw a commercial on television that caught my attention. So much so that I rewound and transcribed it. Here it is...

-----------
Americans are asking, "Just what will our energy future look like."

Well it could look very bright.

New technologies are safely unlocking vast domestic supplies of oil and natural gas like energy from shale. And with smart policies we can create even more great jobs and could generate billions to fund schools, roads and other services.

Peak oil science and evidence - please help

Hi All,

I would like to see if there are people here who are interested in exploring science and current data regarding peak oil.  I am a high school teacher and I am in the process of piloting a 3-month unit on big shifts in our civilization, with peak resources receiving the most attention in that unit.

The great thing about this is that my students and I come up with all sorts of questions that I would be unlikely to think of if I were just studying these topics on my own.
