David Deming has authored an informative article about petroleum production.
He confidently argues: "Nine years ago, I predicted that the age of petroleum has only just begun. I was right. The Peak Oil theorists, the malthusians and the environmentalists were all wrong. They've been proven wrong, over and over again, for decades. A tabulation of every failed prediction of resource exhaustion would fill a library."
Do read it all. Dr. Deming, a geologist, teaches at the University of Oklahoma and that hasn't always been an easy task given his pro-Second Amendment views.
