The Atlantic – What if we never run out of oil?
Basically a look at the history of “peak oil” and how it has driven new methods of energy production / extraction wrapped up in climate alarmism.

Gizmodo – Anonymous takes down NAMBLA’s homepage to protest “Pedophilia Pride Day”
Two points in that headline make my teeth hurt:
1. NAMBLA has a homepage
2. There is a “Pedophilia Pride Day” (God please don’t let there be Pedophilia Pride Parades it’s only 6am and I already feel like my head might explode)
today is Alice Day, a day inspired by Lewis Carroll’s debated sexual attraction to Alice In Wonderland’s very underage and very real counterpart, when proud pedophiles come together in celebration of their disorder. So it’s a beautiful day for a NAMBLA takedown, and Anonymous was happy to answer the call.
I have another potential name for it – Target Practice, but then that would send us all to jail and who would be left to write inane blogposts like this one.
