    Like we didn't have enough problems, already. As noted by the above article, a Kuwaiti commission came to the same conclusion...2012-2015.

    Perhaps this is why Obama recently allowed for more offshore drilling?

    Yep we have been near peak oil for several years. We would likely be there now if not for the recession.
    Learn to live with less.

    Peak oil was 100 million years ago. Critters that turned into petroluem have been gone a long time.

    peak oil is a hoax. Just cause you can stop and block oil exploration politically doesn't mean the resources aren't there.

    And that's what's been happening.

    In every oil-producing country around the world? That's a pretty vast conspiracy, you are suggesting...

    Our country for starters.

    I really do hope to get away from massive oil use ASAP though. Would love to see a cheaper and safe way to fuel transportation....*SNAPS OUTTA DREAM*

    Where the hell do you think electricity comes from? 60 percent from coal and oil. That's where. 60 PERCENT. Electric cars are not going to help at all. We need to build a hell of a lot more Nuclear plants something we stopped doing 30 years ago.

    Algae/seaweed may be a solution. It is more productive with ethanol then any other crop. We need to STOP using food for ethanol.

    And as has been pointed out there is a hell of a lot oil left in this country that we refused to allow be used.
