Good riddance!

Reason.org's blog Hit and Run reports that The Oil Drum, a blog dedicated to promoting the theory of Peak Oil, has closed up shop and shut down.  Why?
The folks over at Marketwatch at the Wall Street Journal speculate:
With news of record-breaking North American oil and gas production seemingly every day, maybe it just got too hard to maintain a site devoted to the notion that the world’s oil production was at or near a peak.
As the H&R post notes, as long as we humans are free to use our ingenuity and creativity in the pursuit of a better life, we'll never run out of energy sources.  It is, after all, the human element that transforms the matter of nature into resources, energy or otherwise.  So I say "good riddance" to anti-life, nihilist theories and their promoters!
