1.0 out of 5 stars No 3.50, December 15, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
OK except that unfortunately they do not have the diopter strength that I desire. I see 3.00 and 4.00 but nothing in between

2.0 out of 5 stars The Oil Drum, September 25, 2011
I am currently reading this book on my Kindle. It is an interesting historical document but misleading in some respects. For extensive discussion see posts at The Oil Drum including [..] ASPO-USA (Association for Study of Peak Oil) will be meeting in Washington DC Nov 2-5 2011. The French geologist Jean Laherrere, a Yergin critic, will be one of the speakers at this meeting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ape and Essence, March 27, 2008
A good read. I was reminded of the Aldous Huxley novel Ape and Essence. It also featured a post-apocalyptic post nuclear war scenario. One of the high points was when survivors found a new fuel supply, buried books that once belonged to the Los Angeles Public Library

1.0 out of 5 stars Broomstick girl, October 1, 2007
For more on Wendy's atrocious behavior throughout the Duke rape frame, read Until Proven Innocent by Stuart Taylor and K. C. Johnson. She is mentioned 10 times in the index. To my knowledge she has yet to apologize.

1.0 out of 5 stars OPEC and Natural Gas, December 19, 2005
Learsy was touting his book on C-Span last night. He did not present any scientific evidence for his opinions. He made no attempt to correct audience statements such as 'most of the Alaskan oil is shipped to Japan'. He did not address the imminent natural gas crisis. The cost of natural gas has gone up more than gasoline. Does Learsy belive that OPEC controls production of natural gas in the US?

1.0 out of 5 stars Fiction, June 29, 2005
This is largely a book of innuendo, speculation and fiction. It's enough to make one wonder if Michael Skakel is innocent.

1.0 out of 5 stars Followed by Helen Caldicott, March 8, 2005
Peter Huber was on C-Span 2 last Sunday. He lets us know that $50 oil will not last since oil can be produced from Canadian sands for $20. It should be amusing to follow this prediction. Is he unaware of net energy questions and EROEI? He was followed by three hours of Dr. Helen Caldicott which believe it or not, was easier to take.
