One Cubic Mile of Oil

Very interesting article over on Wired with a diagram that puts our energy consumption in perspective. Wow! Now I understand what Michael is talking about when he says the singularity has already happened and it was cheap oil. And I get a much better idea of the gloom and doom side of oil depletion Robin’s talking about. Humans consume 1 cubic mile of oil a year and as an example from the Wired chart- the equivalent is 52 Diablo Canyon sized Nuclear Power Plants running for 50 years!!!

Critical-Mass

Wow,
Just to say that B and I were a part of http://www.santamonicacriticalmass.org/ Friday night. I have to tell you it’s really some of the most FUN I’ve had in a LONG time. I mean, I’ve always loved bicycles and that’s a big part of it, but something about 300 of us cruising through the night under a full moon… exhilarating. If there isn’t a group near you http://www.critical-mass.org/ maybe you can start one. If you’re near Santa Monica or Venice, please join us the first Friday of each month.

Welcome – What could we do here?

I know it looks like it has a McLuhan theme, and it could, but initially I was thinking it would simply be a way for us to communicate with each other easily, i.e. Gerry’s Dudley films, events Michael’s going to, Robin observations on the road etc. You can post pictures. Videos as well, but I’ll have to sort out those details as things evolve. If they evolve. At the very least I’m going to use it to post links to McLuhanesque newspaper articles, etc.
