Peak Moment 199: "My own reaction seemed so crazy to me," says psychologist Kathy McMahon of her response to Peak Oil. Wondering if she was the only "wacko", she started the Peak Oil Blues blog to explore her own and readers' responses. As the "Peak Shrink," Kathy formulated a delightfully tongue-in-cheek "Panglossian Disorder" -- an unrealistic optimism about the future. She will soon publish "I Can't Believe You Actually Think That! A Couple's Guide to Finding Common Ground about Peak Oil, Climate Catastrophe, and Economic Hard Times."
