A jarring juxtaposition: a financial web page called Futures and Commodity Market News features a transcribed Voice of America piece called End of Oil.
It tries to give a balanced view by offering viewpoints by Paul Roberts and An Empty Suit.
(paraphrasing) Suit: Oil has the most dense concentration of energy in the most convenient form. Ergo, we will have reserves for the next fifty years and then 500 years after that.
In other words, if I don't say this, I may get fired from my cushy policy wonk position.
