    It will be missed.

        Oh, that's sad. TOD is/was a great resource.

        Be kinder than necessary because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

          We might have already reached "peak oil" and we don't know it.
          Some argue that we have indeed reached it and therefore we see all these energy resource-based wars in the Middle East and Africa.

          I've been researching and the data is quite conflicting. Probably there's a lot of manipulation in the graphs...

          Are we ahead of an exponential depletion of oil? If so, we'll not only run out of gasoline, but also plastic materials and a lot more...
          Quite a scary scenario. Recycling might help and alternative energy resources. But it may never be as easy and cheap as it has been during the 20th century.

          An interesting graph:
