Why peak oil is probably about now

This post is for the benefit of those readers whose friends or relatives just spat out their coffee over their morning New York Times in surprise that oil is starting to run out and nobody warned them before now. If you are looking around for more background information, I would like to summarize a series of arguments and analyses that have led me to the view that peak oil is most likely occurring about now, give or take a year or two. My personal coffee-spitting incident occurred about a year ago, and this is some of what I’ve figured out

  1. America desperately searching for more oil will lead America discovering that America can do without imported crude oil.

    This poster (or propagandist?) Orikinla Osinachi posted a similar unexplained comment on my blog … apparently a devout Christian, he may believe that Jesus will hand us the oil, but I do not believe that a Good Savior will give us such dirty stuff. Doesn’t He save with Holy Blood, not Holy Oil?

    Hey Denny, that’s a terrific summary for people like me who haven’t really educated ourselves on the topic of Peak Oil to date. Thanks for posting the link to it, and cheers for the link to my blog too 🙂
