For SmartPlanet this week, I debunked the hottest story in energy for the last two weeks: The IEA’s assertion that the U.S. will overtake Saudi Arabia as the world’s top oil producer by 2020.

My original title was “Scarcity training.” I argue that Sandy is a glimpse into a future in which scarcity is more frequent, and that people need to build resilience and self-sufficiency into their lives.
