Super-eruptions: Volcanic Activity with a Global Impact; Stephen Self, Volcano Dynamics Group, Department of Earth Science, The Open University, Senior Volcanologist, US NRC - Every now and again, Earth suffers from tremendous explosive volcanic eruptions, much bigger than those witnessed in modern times. Although the return period for such events is long, perhaps every 10-100,000 years depending on the size, it is statistically more likely that Earth will next experience a large...

PEAK OIL AND THE GREAT RECESSION Kenneth S. Deffeyes Emeritus Prof. of Geology Princeton University In 2001, my first oil book predicted that world oil production would peak in the year 2005. The most recent data from the Energy Information Agency say that it happened! Even with the extreme spike in oil prices, the year 2008 produced less oil than 2005. Production for the first half of 2009 is even lower. The invisible hand of economics has become the invisible fist; pounding the...
