Oil Man: Chroniques du début de la fin du pétrole

24 Sep 2011

The Oil Man blog on Le Monde’s website has excellent coverage of oil issues—especially peak oil—including better coverage of things happening in the U.S. than you often get from any mainstream U.S. publication.

Occasionally it’s translated into English, but usually it’s only in French. But it’s worth feeding into Google Translate and trying to suss out what it is saying, because it often has things you would be hard-pressed to find elsewhere.
