199: Peak Oil Blues — We’re All Bozos on this Bus

pm199_200.jpg“My own reaction seemed so crazy to me,” says psychologist Kathy McMahon of her response to Peak Oil. Wondering if she was the only “wacko”, she started the Peak Oil Blues blog to explore her own and readers’ responses. As the “Peak Shrink,” Kathy formulated a delightfully tongue-in-cheek “Panglossian Disorder” — an unrealistic optimism about the future. She is about to publish “I Can’t Believe You Actually Think That!” A Couple’s Guide to Finding Common Ground about Peak Oil, Climate Catastrophe, and Economic Hard Times.

As someone who has invested a lot of time and energy into a traditional corporate career and middle-class lifestyle the gap between where I am and where the world needs to be can be overwhelming. It’s comforting to be just one of the bozos instead of having to take heroic measures.
