Three on energy

Tim Worstall, excellent: "Can we please just declare the end of 'peak oil' and start worrying about something important?"

So, peak oil wouldn't be a problem if it did happen and it's not going to happen anyway. So can we please just declare the end of peak oil and get on with worrying about something important instead? Like, say, what is the solution to Simon Cowell?

(Blog author's note: I don't think economics offers a solution for Simon Cowell.)

Steven Hayward: "Unconventional Energy Meets Conventional Politics: Which Will Win?" I think it will be a very close call.

Robert Johnson on Business Insider: "The Canadian Oil Sand Mines Refused Us Access, So We Rented This Plane To See What They Were Up To". Interesting and with pictures.
