Doomsday scenario

The Portland peak oil task force draft report "Descending the Oil Peak: Navigating the transition from oil and natural gas" is now available on the city's OSD website. I have not yet read the entire 86-page report and I admit I'm scared to after a friend confessed he's seriously hesitant about having children after hearing about its predictions. But Portland is one of the few cities in the country taking peak oil seriously enough to incorporate it into long-term planning and I believe it is worth the read, even if only for the temporary form of birth control.
