I've been reading http://theoildrum.com/ for many years now, and
their numbers and forecasts held up a lot better than official ones
(to the point of official forecasts being running jokes, but
of the unfunny variety).

I should say it surprises me that in 2013 most people have no
clue what Peak Fossil means, but unfortunately it doesn't 
surprise me. History may not repeat itself, but it does rhyme.

Good luck. We all are going to need it.
