The Oil Drum is the only site I know of that makes you think seriously about the end of the world. But even Nate Hagens, my favorite commentator there, feels compelled to offer a disclaimer of sorts for this guest post by George Mobus. Hagens writes:
As an editor here, I continually struggle to find a balance of discourse that presents scientific reality in ways that don't come across as apocalyptic or frightening. In my opinion, the larger the lens with which we view our situation, the more informed choices will be made towards more sustainable trajectories.
Well, Nate, this Oil Drum review of William Catton's new book, Bottleneck: Humanity's Impending Impasse, is enough to make even Richard Dawkins embrace the Rapture.
