Huge geology conference

There was a huge geology conference recently in Norway. I'll bet all the geology bloggers were there! I, of course, knew nothing about it, since it was in the summer.

This guy writes a very nice summary of it, and there are comments as well. Apparently, he is a big pusher of 'peak oil', which is the next big scare story, after global warming. It basically says that we've found most of the oil that exists, and now we're going downhill fast. In ten years we'll be fighting wars over oil.

Now, if you combine global warming with peak oil, we find there is a drastic drop in our ability to spew carbon in ten years. Thus, combined with the sun-spot crowd, we get horribly cold weather in ten years. It'll be perfect for skiers!
