Thread: Paper on Peak Oil

  1. #1

    Paper on Peak Oil

    Hello everybody! It's been awhile since my last post because I've been very busy these days. However, I have a favor to ask somebody-

    I am in a community involvement class and one of the requirements of the class is to write a paper on a social topic that interests us. I chose peak oil/the social ramifications of an oil based society. I have written the paper and it's been edited once by my dad, but I need a professional to read it and critique it based on some class-set guidelines. So if anyone is interested and would care to read it, I would appreciate it very much.

    He may be an over-the-top writer, but Kunstler has several links on his page to sites focusing on this issue. Check out www.kunstler.com

    I have read many of his articles, though none of his books. I agree with much of what he has to say, but I think he complains too much without suggesting possible resolutions. I started reading his stuff at a fairly bitter time in my life, so it all struck me as very true, but in retrospect, I wish he wouldn't be so pessimistic.

    Anyone want to read my paper?

    Sorry to press the matter, but if someone would just read my paper and throw in a few comments, it would help me immensely. One of the requirements of the paper is that I get a proffesional in the area we are studying to read it. It's nothing too formal, as it is just a high school class. I was hoping a cyburbanite would be willing to read it, but if not I'll have to find someone else soon.

    Last request for this, I promise
