Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I imagine this only happens in places where there are massive government subsidies on oil as oil-fired power plants are extremely unprofitable in the baseload role.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.

I can't say for certain, but my understanding is that oil is used for peaking while hydro and gas fills the baseload role in most of Latin America.

Hmm.   Maybe a diary with the figures would do some good. I've not been good about diarying lately. Preoccupied with writing for school and the job search.

BTW if anyone knows of a job search site for academic positions in Europe, I'd appreciate it.

For Germany, there's the Ausschreibungsdienst of the Hochschulverband, but I'm not sure if you can get the listings for free.
