Eric Raymond on Peak Oil

Eric Raymond is a part time hero, part time laughing stock of the open source community. He has gone off on a rant about Peak Oil.It’s pretty much the standard anarcho-capitalist argument: the market will fix it.

He says we can just build nazi machines to turn coal into oil. I guess that would work. At least until we run out of coal or greenhouse ourselves to death with the CO2. He doesn’t really talk about the radiation problems, either. I guess the magic nazi mchines fix that, too.

Market, Market Über Alles…
