Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

It reminds me of a story my grandmother told me before she died. Sometime during the 30's she was visiting friends in Germany and Hitler was visiting the city the same day, huge parade, flags from windows, people on balconies and so on. You really didn't wanted to be seen not having a swastika flag hanging from your window if you were at home that day. So she and the entire family she was visiting actually hid in the farthest reaches of their apartment, as far away from the windows as was physically possible. And my grandmother never got to see Hitler.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
