The Shock Model in Action

Brown warns of global oil 'shock'

Radio talker Mike Malloy spent some time talking peak oil recently. As always, he had some interesting takes, especially concerning the religious right's belief in abundant oil. His response was "Well the Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away".

Similar to what Aldo Leopold said: "the Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away, but he is no longer the only one to do so."

Oil has become a despised personality

Jim Quinn, rabid right wing talk show host: "Somebody said this -- We can't make up for lack of oil by drilling more. That's as crazy as saying we can't make up a shortage of food by growing more"
