I'd like to see a "write in Jim Mattis" campaign in New Hampshire just to give those Republicans such as your wife an alternative. I doubt he would decline to serve if called.

It would be very interesting to read your opinions on the article, addressing the subjects of USA consumption, production, subsidies. Also the predictions on the decline of tight oil.

That seems like a completely reasonable exercise.

That seems like a completely reasonable exercise. Having gone through about the first 20 of his 30 paragraphs, most of his article isn't about the topics you've mentioned. Of, he says something here and there, particularly about US tight oil and shale gas, but he spends more time claiming that he correctly predicted high prices devastating the economy then he does on the topics you mention.


Would it help if I quote small sections of it ?

I've already been through the first 20 paragraphs, then ran off and looked up some of his earlier work to see how honest he was being. Oops....poor guy, obviously he has a personal revisionist thing going on, which isn't a surprise.

Greer's latest.


For someone who started off as a oil doomer, John looks like he is now trying out a more measured argument to climate change.

Seemed more like a book review with commentary than anything else.
