Some of you may have heard that CNN is teaming up with YouTube for the next primary debates, inviting regular ol' citizens to submit their questions. I have become rather focused (ya might say "obsessed") with the subject of peak oil, and so I asked my question about that. The odds of my question being selected are super tiny, but part of the benefit is to make people aware that the question is even out there. Maybe more of you will think about the topic and ask your elected officials what they plan to do. Portland, Ore. has the right idea.

I will be re-posting this video as part of my podcast feed, but I wanted to get the YouTube version up before tonight's debate. Check it, and leave comments. Ask questions, and for the love of petrol, read The Oil Drum.

For some background on my own Peak Oil interest, see my Weekly Dig column on the subject.
