More good news!

World oil usage dropped this year, and the economy is a huge factor. But I'll take good news any way I can get it.

The world's population will use less oil this year than it did last year, according to a new forecast from highly-regarded International Energy Agency.

Global oil demand hasn't dropped since 1983 when the world's developed economies were struggling on the tail end of a recession. This time around, it's not just the old, big economies that are struggling. China, which has experienced the greatest boom in history, appears to be in economic trouble. |Wired|
Global warming is an order of magnitude more important than the economic crisis, but that's not how people act.
