About Us was started in 2005 by Dan C., a software engineer coming to a realization about the importance of understanding then improving the world’s hydrocarbon energy systems.

The web is full of diversions, distractions, fluff, and filth, but there are few rare places on the web where you can discuss the things that actually matter to our lives, our families, and to future generations.

Our site’s mission has been “exploring the issue of hydrocarbon depletion” AKA Peak Oil, undoubtedly the most serious economic and cultural crossroads in several generations. is a strictly non-commercial & non-affiliated news aggregation and a message-board social networking news site. We are an online community run for and by the members. Today, is administered by Tanada, from the western shores of Lake Erie.

@damianbruced @robertburke84 good pt; resources to admin them are a likely constraint; my take on VPs (reality) - to act as a disincentive to mass discretionary travel, b/c in reality (#PeakOil) mass air travel is toast. That's going back to maybe 1970s consumption levels anyway.

@claudia_stauber 5/Corbett denies #PeakOil. It's connected to Human Caused Climate Change, in that both are caused by burning 1T BBLs of petroleum in ~100 years. Corbett pushes the "Deep Oil Theory", aka Abiotic or Abiogenic Oil. It's really bizarre pseudoscience. Unicorns & fairy dust.
