Great work getting this started Marvin!

We welcome new users, browsers, critics (as long as you do not focus on what we are not, i.e. conventional economists) brilliant and not so brilliant ideas, papers that you think should be included and so on. We especially would like to make materials available for those who would like to teach or at least introduce to students biophysical economics, and will include resources over time.

The gas business is in a difficult situation of having to ration demand particularly when it comes from what could be its best short- term customer, but the longer term requires just this. Until there is a way to manage the gas use along with its production, it may as well not exist. Unless the gas is used properly, environmental issues that are now lodged behind credit and peak oil concerns will elbow the way to the forefront, systematically removing our ability to transition from fossil fuels. Gas reserves will be gobbled by recreational auto use and consumption would then revert to (depleted) oil/coal sources that the gas would otherwise replace.
