Peak oil letter to the Chron

When I wrote my post-petroleum piece I watched my local paper (the San Francisco Chronicle) waiting to see if they would cover peak oil. The phrase appeared in a business section headline speculating that Chevron was betting on peak oil to increase its profits. Peak oil itself was considered a controversial concept said the writer. I'd heard that before with global warming and popped off a letter to the editor just to let them know readers weren't fooled. They printed it verbatim.

Excerpted from The Resistance
