labor day

I'll be on vacation for the next few days, through the American holiday of Labor day.

Here are a few of my favorite sites to check out for the duration:

Peak Energy Aussie
The Oil Drum
The Energy Bulletin

Uncertainty swirls in the wake of the Hurricane as I prepare to take my leave.

What is the fate of New Orleans? The major Ports?
How much oil production was taken out?
How many Oil Rigs are floating free? Seven? Twelve?

Noting that Deffeyes has predicted a peak date of November, 2005, and Matt Simmons expects the peak any time: If enough oil production infrastructure was destroyed or damaged by the hurricane, say, 400,000 barrels a day, and if it takes more than a few months to get it all back (as seems likely) --

-- Peak Oil may have hit the globe when the Gulf rigs were evacuated.

Strange. Are we ready? Are you ready?
