Interesting article... Of course it turns political as soon as people get involved. I don't listen to people who start discussions by calling stuff "XYZ nonsense."

One quesiton: Why are we so concerned with oil and inflation? This may be due to the human condition of being oversensitive/biased to low probability, high impact events. In the 70s, there was an oil shortage crsis and terrible inflation. 40 years later, we're all so paranoid of... Oil prices and inflation. Maybe it's like if you survived a plane crash, and now you're afraid of flying, even though it's safer than driving. (bbmaven check with your wife on this one, I'm not an expert)
