The Oil Drum: New York City

Helping New Yorkers understand, prepare and adapt to the implications of Peak Oil

Friends in the Sustainable Blogosphere

I'd like to point regular readers of this site to check out some great blogs that I have been following over the past few weeks and highlight some other people involved in building a more sustainable world.

Upstate in Syracuse, NY we have Baloghblog, who has been taking pictures of gas stations and has recently wrote an interesting post on taking a low energy vacation. He's also been keeping me up-to-date on gas prices with daily photos of gas signs in his area. We love the photos Baloghblog, but we hope you're in the passenger seat when you take them!

Cityhippy reminds me that all the little stuff we do matters and has collected more than 430 bookmarks on interesting sites dealing with sustainable living and regularly posts articles about people trying to live a more sustainable life. Recently CityHippy did an interview with the founder of GuideMeGreen - an inspiring guy.

Starts and Fits latest post is on the lunacy of GM's emphasis on heavy trucks to drive sales in the recent run-up in gas prices. Somebody over at the NYC Department of Fixing Stuff must read that page considering the recent quick turnaround on a request he posted.

Jeff over at Sustainablog has been a great source of information this Summer while he was vacation from school, although lately with school starting he seems content to use the Weekly World News as a key source on Peak Oil news. But then again, where else would I find out that "Gals Who Go Topless Live Longer"

Also, check out some of my links to the right and send me any of your favorite sites.

Hey peakguy

Thanks for the shout...your encouragement fuels us for sure. With us focusing on the little things and others like you focusing on the big things I reckon we have got the issues surrounded.

As the poet Benjamin Zephaniah said: Power to the peaceful!

Namaste

thanks for the nod as well...

Actually I just pick up the digital and take about 5 "pot-shots" without aiming the camera, and usually one is usable. The nice clear one's I pull over for.

I guess that there is a station down the street that has no gas this a.m. I haven't been out yet, but will confirm when I do.

Thanks for spreading the word on the energy vacation. We will definitely be doing it in about a month, and I encourage others to entertain the thought.
