Even THEY know we're running out

Ran across this today:

"Energy will be one of the defining issues of this century. One thing is clear: the era of easy oil is over. What we do next will determine how well we meet the energy needs of the entire world in this century and beyond.

So we invite you to join us for a series of discussions on some very important issues. Will you join us?"

Blah, blah... pretty standard stuff for any of about a million alternative energy sites... but wait. Spend a minute on the front page. See the title of the page in your browser pane? And take a gander at the corporate logo at the lower right. Nope. You're not smoking crack.

It's a Chevron site.

I haven't poked around the site yet, but megacorporations have always spent lots of money to LOOK like they cared about whatever natural resource they were raping... usually they refer to it as "managing" the resource, meaning they "manage" to take it and you shouldn't ask questions because they are "managing" it "responsibly" (i.e. "the government says it's okay because we paid them off").
