Swift Boating of Peak Oil
MG beat everyone to the punch in discovering Dr. Jerome Kersi's recent book on abiotic oil (published by World Nut Daily, of course!).
Upon getting excited by this turn of events, I sent an email to Mike Malloy of Air America Radio who enjoys this kind of wing-nutty freepery possibly more than I do.
Mike,In an alternate take on reality that may not venture too far from the truth, I posted this in MG's comments section:
I just ran across the publication of Dr. Jerome Corsi's new book called "Black Gold Stranglehold". You remember Corsi? The guy that wrote the anti-Kerry book with John O'Neill. Ah yes, the chicken-hawk swift-boater.
Well if he just hasn't jumped the shark again. The blurb says:
Which implies that Corsi thinks the supply of oil is essentially infinite. Apparently, we have not tried hard enough to get at the oil. And he believes that "the shortsightedness of those who endorse expensive conservation efforts" prevents us from winning the battle against nature.
Let us all pitch in and buy Corsi a shovel. If he starts digging now, and doesn't happen to find any oil, at least he can make a spider-hole big enough for him and his swift-boater colleagues to spend their retirement in.
Peak oil has just been swift-boated and rather-gated all at once.This won't happen of course, largely because Corsi missed the (swift) boat on this one by not calling his book: Intelligent Design of Oil. Now that would have gotten the freepers really excited.
This guy will be on all the right-wing radio stations, and the ditto-heads will join in.
Time for all of us to concede the vote, hand in our resignations, and go home and sulk. We have no chance at winning this battle.
