Remember when Obama said “we can’t drill our way out” of high oil prices? Expiration date passed!

What Peak Oil Demand Would Do to the Global Economy.

“Peak oil” supply concerns have been dismissed as groundless foolishness in recent years, with the American shale revolution acting as the nail in the coffin of the notion peddled by doomsaying greens. But though oil production is booming around the world, and despite the fact that a global glut has brought crude prices down to less than half of what they were 28 months ago, there’s a new “peak” concern for crude: namely, that demand for oil is going to begin to fall within the next 20 years.

Unlike those fears over hydrocarbon scarcity, there are some concrete reasons to be concerned about the future of oil demand. Electric vehicles are gaining market share, and because they don’t run on refined petroleum products, their ascendancy will naturally impact the oil sector. But the global economy is intricately tied to the oil industry, and if demand does peak around 2030, trillions of dollars of economic activity could be affected.



Meh. Frack, baby, frack.

Remember when that dope Sarah Palin said we could drill our way out? That was after her dumb remarks about Russia being a threat. No place in politics for the likes of her!
