Comedy + History = Win!

Political satirist and comedian Robert Newman is a bit of a kook, his website is hosted by solar powered web servers, he eats only grass fed meat, doesn't own a car, and takes Peak Oil very seriously. Why should you listen to him?

Because he's hilarious. I just saw his 2005 skit - The History Of Oil, an entertaining lecture on the geopolitics of fossil fuel. He's taken most of his talking points from this book, but then again, he's a kook. As I've pointed out before, we've got plenty of other fossil fuels left.

Enough pontificating, grab some popcorn and enjoy the comedy.
