IEA report - a "690-page digital doorstop"

My previous post on the International Energy Agency's "2012 World Energy Outlook" noted the projected boom in North American energy production.

Peter Foster supplies a closer look at the IEA's "Anti-markets drivel":
... the IEA report contains a bucketload of irony and embarrassment both for President Obama and the kind of wonky thinking that pervades the IEA. The IEA’s reference to the contribution of “policy action” to the boom is almost satirical. Despite his Damascene “all of the above” conversion in this election year, President Obama is the most anti-oil president ever. ...
$150 and 690 pages - that's pretty pricey drivel. Thanks to Peter, for doing the heavy lifting.
