New York Times bashes peak oil
Opposition to the idea of peak oil runs strong in the liberal mainstream media----after all, high oil prices are all caused by evil speculators, donja know.

I've always found that odd, that most liberals seem to be peak oil deniers.
Liberals like solutions, if it's something that can't be fixed they don't want to talk about it.

And journalists of many persuasions run pieces rubbishing PO. There really is no left-right rule for who would or wouldn't accept PO. You just seem to want to attack 'liberals' no matter how spurious the argument.
