For the past 18 months or so, I have been following the news on peak oil, mostly via The Oil Drum and its fantastic contributions are a real education on the present and future state of energy, humanity, and a few other gems.
This blog is an effort to collect my thoughts, and to maintain a record of the trends as they evolve. It may serve as a template for a book, though for now it's more like a notebook. It will also serve as a supplement to a couple of courses I am currently teaching at Concordia University in Montreal: POLI 394, Globalization and Sustainable Development, and POLI 486J, Energy, Power, Security. I look forward to comments from members of these courses, and from outsiders who may stumble upon these notes.
