Oil at Noon, from Riz Din

October 10, 2008 |

It's all rather beautiful how the worry generating meme of permanently high oil prices and ever higher food prices has given way without anyone in the mainstream batting an eyelid. I just typed the word into Amazon.co.uk. and the first page of search results yields the following pessimistic titles:

- The End of Oil: The Decline of the Petroleum Economy and the Rise of a New Energy Order
- Beyond Oil: The View from Hubbert's Peak
- The Last Oil Shock: A Survival Guide to the Imminent Extinction of
Petroleum Man
- Party's Over: Oil, War and the Fate of Industrial Societies
- A Crude Awakening

All of these books are marked down, with A Crude Awakening trading at almost a quarter of the recommended price. I expected deeper discounts will trail further declines in the spot price. On the same Amazon page, we also have 'The Myth of the Oil Crisis: Overcoming the Challenges of Depletion, Geopolitics, and Global Warming', price unchanged.
