What are your favorite literary texts about oil and oil capitalism? I'm looking for anything from traditional realism to noir to science fiction, from poetry to film to comic books to video games to philosophy and theory. Anything could work. Bonus points if the focus is on globalization and/or Peak Oil and resource scarcity. [more inside]

Oil is dwindling. Right now it happens to also be cheap. I should "buy" it, right?

So the price of oil is ridiculously low right now. But since we're running out of the stuff in the mid-to-long-term, can you explain to me why i shouldn't pour a nice big chunk of my investment egg into oil futures? [more inside]

Peak Oil? nah...

I'm looking for a good refutation of "Peak Oil". Articles about the certainty/validity of Peak Oil are not hard to come by, but I have yet to find a decent opposing view. I'm open to the possibility that these claims have basis, but I feel as though my reading on the topic is skewed heavily in favor of it.
