Peak Oil Advice Columnist

American Prospect profiles peak oil advice columnist Kathy McMahon:

In May 2006, shortly after her peak oil "awakening," McMahon started Peak Oil Blues, a "Dear Abby"–like online column about waning fossils fuels, in part to deal with her own growing unease over the scarcity of oil. "My world was dramatically changed when I learned about peak oil," McMahon's introductory post reads. "The more I looked around, the more things I realized would go, like plastics or kiwi fruit."

Coming to terms with peak oil can have that effect on people -- but it's an opportunity as well a crisis. Join the transition movement party!
