I had a letter
published in the San Francisco Chronicle yesterday and I made a friend. She's a fellow blogger
. She was quoted in one of the articles
I was referencing. I had been watching the articles
on oil and gasoline prices to see if they would mention peak oil. They did in a backhanded sort of way. The subject deserves to be addressed head on, but knowing how the media is, they are probably under pressure from oil/auto interests not to give it full coverage, just as happened with global warming. So I thought I'd help them along by letting them know that, as a reader, I was onto the issue and they might as well do their job and cover it. Their online columnists Mark Morford
, my muse, my funhouse mirror has mentioned peak oil so it is quickly getting on the radar.
