It's been near non-existent for commentary here Jenna. Any chance you are going to take the hint and liven the place up a little by doing...something? Anything? Advertising? Silly claims of doom or collapse tomorrow afternoon to get the faithful fired up and rushing out to buy ammo or dig a hole to build a bunker in or something?

Just kiddin' witch'ya. Seriously though, this place is dead. Maybe the doomers are as well? Most of them are pretty old, the doomer demographic is heavily geriatric. Trump voters as well perhaps?

My comment wasn't about them Jenna. And unlike most of the doomosphere legions, you at least are capable of both reading and comprehending. So at least you know this.

How about some objectivity, a topic we have discussed before. Do you know of a SINGLE doom group that has taken the time to run a supply based model to really determine what might happen in the future?

"U.S. net energy imports, including petroleum and other liquids, natural gas and coal, decline and ultimately end in the reference case, a first since the 1950s," EIA said. "The net import share of total U.S. energy consumption was 11% in 2015 and 30% as recently as 2005.

"The transition from a net energy importer to a net energy exporter follows a similar pattern in the reference and no-CPP [Clean Power Plan] cases, although the total levels of U.S. energy consumption and production are somewhat higher beyond 2022 in the no-CPP case. By 2040, total U.S. energy production is greater than total U.S. energy consumption, allowing for U.S. net energy exports equal to 4% of total consumption."
