The Peak Oil Puzzle

George Monbiot sums up the Peak Oil puzzle well when he writes:

Are global oil supplies about to peak? Are they, in other words, about to reach their maximum and then go into decline? There is a simple answer to this question: no one has the faintest idea.|Link|

He goes on to make an argument for switching to fossil fuel alternatives sooner rather than later to lessen the trauma to society when the oil does start to run out. I concur heartily.

Hi there, you have done a great analysis on Peak oil, I also thought about it for a long time and later found that people call it "Peak Oil", Iam from India, there is little or no awareness about it over here, and I feel there is nothing we can do about it, Have a look at my blog,
