Subject: OT: Hubbert's Peak
Date: Fri, 23 Nov 2001 11:55:08 -0800

Is anyone reading _Hubbert's Peak: The Impending World Oil Shortage_, by 
Kenneth S. Deffeyes?  I would think a declining oil supply will affect the 
economic environment for our Supersurvival goals.

In case someone wants to shrug off Deffeyes's scenario, I would point out 
that it's based on the work of the legendary earth scientist M. King 
Hubbert, who is kind of like the Gordon Moore of the oil industry.  Hubbert 
back in the 1950's projected that U.S. oil production would peak and then 
permanently decline by the early 1970's.  In fact, the peak happened in 
1970.  This isn't like Nostradamus stuff or other vague forms of prediction 
or futurology.
