More to digest...

On top of the turkey, or turducken, or TVP veggie loaf, or whatever y'all had for Thanksgiving yesterday...

I meant to include this in my 11/25 post:

Though unsurprising, it recently came to light that the International Energy Agency has been downplaying the severity of coming global oil shortages while overestimating future discoveries and production figures— and this under some pressure from the U.S, per a whistleblower at the agency.

The IEA acts as a policy advisor to many developed nations with respect to energy issues. These nations look to IEA largely for forecasting fossil fuel availability. Ironic, then, that the agency's website describes its work for its members as "to ensure reliable, affordable and clean energy for their citizens." A bit of greenwashing can do wonders for one's PR.
