Peak Oil Media: "Humans > Yeast?", Moyers, Kunstler, Rubin, Olbermann & Krugman
Under the fold, a few short videos apropos of the problems we face: Bill Moyers on PBS provocatively talking big oil last night, Kunstler talking the long emergency on CBC, Jeff Rubin on CNBC talking $7 gas, VMT, light rail, and other things, and then finally Olbermann and Krugman talking both US presidential candidates' "energy policy." Include other links in the comments.

Here's a provocative Bill Moyers essay on big oil that is not for the faint of heart, which aired last night on PBS. (http://www.pbs.org/billmoyers; 6 mins). "America has become little more than an energy protection force, doing anything to gain access to expensive fuel without regard for the lives of others or the earth itself." I wonder why that is, perhaps because the easy energy is getting harder to get? Hmmm...
Jeff Rubin of CIBC predicts $7 gasoline on CNBC with Erin Burnett, which he says would take 10 million cars off the road. They talk about a lot of the variables and different ideas involved in the situation--it's really good (4 mins).
