        =v= The mainstream media keeps fumbling their explanations about
        peak oil to the public. They write as if the oil is running
        out, so whenever there's a new discovery (like the one in Brazil
        earlier this month), pundits blather on about how this disproves
        peak oil.

        =v= The first article at the truthout link is good, because it
        focuses on the rate of oil production, but I have to wonder how
        many readers will pick up on that.

        =v= The third article there botches things by describing Richard
        Heinberg's vision as "apocalyptic," when in fact Heinberg has
        devoted most of his effort towards dealing with the problem
        sensibly. I predict that pundits (probably the same pundits
        as before) will respond to this article by calling us alarmists,
        Chicken Littles, etc.
