OK, I made a logical leap. The biggest part of the problem re the general public
ignorance of the coming oil crisis is due to the massive ignorance of ECONOMISTS.
Economists think the world runs on money, not energy. Of course they're wrong, dead

linked from there, for a brief indication of why and how they are so wrong. Search
the archive at energyresources for "economists" for more info.
