It's also been covered in the news.
If you're not careful, you can get to feeling depressed by reading all this, or you can get overwhelmed, decide it can't be as bad as this, and ignore it. I don't think either are useful. Perhaps one way out is to listen to an interview with T. Boone Pickens' at ASPO. He clearly thinks we've passed peak oil, and yet he's not gloomy and depressed. He does point out some of the adjustments we'll need to make in business and in our personal lives (e.g., natural gas for transportation instead of heating while we search for alternatives).
What's your take on all this? If these sorts of changes come to pass, will they affect our businesses? How? What are we doing in our businesses to prepare for the sort of shocks mentioned here yesterday and today? What can we do? What should we do? What opportunities do these changes open up?
