Peak oil – Optimist vs. Pessimist

Peak Oil

(Wha? Wait! No, I said “PEAK” oil, not “PEEK”. Oh well… Ladies and gentleman, Kim Peek.)
When I saw the name of the blog, I didn’t understand the connection. Why would a blog called PeakOilDebunked be talking about scooters? I was expecting to see a lecture on how scooter riders where a bunch of crybaby hippies who were too scared to ride around in a man-vehicle.
Luckily for me PeakOilDebunked is more about dispelling the myth that when oil goes, society goes too. Click on the above link to read a nice little story where JD offers his opinion on what changes to expect with the death of our favorite fossil fuel.
Does that mean we’ll be hauling stuff around like they do in Japan?
Maybe… but I bet it’ll be somewhere in between that and what we have now. Thanks to Ilya for the scoop!

    I really think there is business that can be done to import those cargo scooter to America. like the Honda Gyro Canopy. or those Vespa with PX200 with big Pizza box on the back. Whoever can do it will earn a lot of money
