Looking at the peak, mid-July

Sunday morning peak, from our household's vantage point:
  • We're having bad luck with our garden. Goats plowed through one new fence's weak spot, devouring green things and opening the way for chickens to finish off the remainder. We've fixed the fence, and are scrambling to figure out next steps.
  • The US government is opening up some protected lands to usage, thanks in part to the ethanol boom. Peak oil's onset is literally changing the landscape.
  • A Forbes story covers various negative effects of $4/gallon gas, including hits to charities, everybody's operating costs, truckers, and movers. And this is just early, early days.
