Good News, Bad News

Good News: UW Economic Geologist, Eric Cheney, says we’re not running out of oil or other mineral resources any millenia soon. Granted, we might pay top dollar for them, but they will still be there. The biggest contributors to cost that aren’t normally taken into account are: exploration, transportation, taxes, societal and environmental programs. Read all the highlights of his talk — I’m looking for other coverage or transcripts of his talk (not finding any — probably shouldn’t surprise me).

Bad News: According to Eric Salathé, we here in the Northwest are due for more watery winters. Gotta love global climate change.
