The one chart about oil's future everyone should see

The one chart about oil's future everyone should see | Sustain Our Earth | Scoop.it

"With high oil prices and the hottest new technique unable to move the needle on worldwide production of crude oil, we should look at Glen Sweetnam's chart with considerable concern. We should ask ourselves whether it is wise to base energy policy on the fantasies of industry and government forecasters. Perhaps we should focus instead on the trends and data we can verify and prepare ourselves and our economies for a world that may not have the copious amounts of oil that the industry is promising."

 

Kurt Cobb's evidence-based reply to the energy eldorado dreamers.

Fool me twice, shame on me: The oil industry repackages the fake abundance story (from the late 1990s)

Fool me twice, shame on me: The oil industry repackages the fake abundance story (from the late 1990s) | Sustain Our Earth | Scoop.it

"Only the oil industry would now have the audacity once again to peddle a story that it has gotten wrong for more than a decade as if it were brand new. Enlisting the media and its army of paid consultants, the industry is once again telling the public that oil abundance is at hand. And, what is doubly audacious is that it is promoting this tale as oil prices hover at levels more than eight times the 1999 low. Clearly, the industry is counting on collective amnesia to shield it from ridicule."

 

Good analysis by Kurt Cobb on how the pusher (the oil industry) is keeping the junkie (the economy) hooked on its stuff by offering dreams and fantasies.

Where we wrong on peak oil? Don't think so...

Where we wrong on peak oil? Don't think so... | Sustain Our Earth | Scoop.it

Brilliant response by Rob Hopkins of Transition Culture to George Monbiot's recent claim that were were wrong on peak oil.

 

"The “we were wrong about peak oil” argument only really works as something to get excited about if you are a cornucopian who also believes that free market economics and deregulation is the key to economic growth and prosperity. It also helps if you believe that climate change is a scam..."
