In this Podcast, Nicole, RE and Monsta discuss the Energy issues confronting Industrial Society as the Age of Oil comes to a close.

We delve into the economic and environmental issues surrounding both Nuclear Energy and Renewable Energy resources such as Solar, Wind and Hydro power.  How will credit contraction affect the development of future energy resources?  How will the Waste Disposal and decomissioning problems for the current generation of Nuclear Power Plants be handled?  Is Thorium Nuclear a viable option?

What are the true calculations for EROEI for Renewables?  How is the Renewable paradigm being pursued now, and is there a better way to develop these resources?

All this and much much more in the Podcast!

" As a daily reader of all of the doomsday blogs, e.g. the Diner, Nature Bats Last, Zerohedge, Scribbler, etc… I must say that I most look forward to your “off the microphone” rants. Your analysis, insights, and conclusions are always logical, well supported, and clearly articulated – a trifecta not frequently achieved."- Joe D
