The Oil Drum, a blog that functioned as a clearinghouse for any and all things “peak oil” announced earlier this month that it would stop updating and will remain solely as a static archive.
Rembrandt Koppelaar, one of the blog’s founders, wrote on July 3 that The Oil Drum would no longer put out new material “due to scarcity of new content caused by a dwindling number of contributors.” He wrote that, “Despite our best efforts to fill this gap we have not been able to significantly improve the flow of high quality articles.” And it’s not just on The Oil Drum that peak oil discussion has been flagging, but all over the internet.
