    Harvey Is A Major Still-Unfolding Disaster

    Superstorm Harvey continues to wreak epic damage to Texas, particularly Houston.

    But it’s not the wind, it’s the rain. Epic, record-breaking, unbelievable amounts of rain.

    It’s entirely possible that the entire region will not get back ‘to normal’ for months, if not years.

    Peak ‘Cheap’ Oil: Shale Oil Proves Peak Oil Is Indeed Upon Us

    Ever the contrarian, I have been quite skeptical of the many breathless claims being made by wide swaths of the media about how a new energy bonanza is going to overtake the U.S. and eventually the world.  The subject, of course, is the new shale plays in both natural gas and oil.
