    Now Glenn:

      Since I used that phase once, you are probably thinking about me (among
    others?). I would never call you the _only_ prophet of gloom and doom -- just
    _ONE_ of the prophets of gloom and doom.

    If you are right, it is pretty sad. My granddaughter is some sort of Triathlon
    Academic Team and has economics of energy as one of the the topics. The
    literature she has been given touts the viewpoint that you criticize -- namely
    that there are gobs of reserve oil left.

    Can you cite an easily available reference for a Freshman in High School that
    she could obtain for the library -- the most compelling one you know of? Who
    knows, this humble beginning could help to put the world on the
    correct path :-)
