(Note: I decided to edit out the somewhat snarky tone and give more better props to Robert. Although Robert possesses a doomer-slant and he is slow to admit good news, he's unlike the obdurate morons of the peak oil community; he's an intelligent, hardworking and talented individual who's record speaks for itself; he's been known to go against heavyweights like Ken Deffeyes, or the flow of the peak oil community. Though his stance on shale gas is overdue, the fact he's come around merits respect - unlike Matthew Simmons who is still convinced "we're heading off the cliff.")

I like Robert Rapier, I think he's one of the Drum's better writers and makes some interesting points; however, I still find he has a rather strong doomer-slant, and he's a bit slow towards accepting good news. However, Robert, after what seemed to be eons, finally came around to see the light on shale gas: "that we have enough natural gas available that civilization isn't going to end any time soon due to lack of energy supplies."
Time is getting short and I only had time to skim through the blog. I just thought it was interesting to point out=)
