Peak Oil? What Peak Oil? -- August 11, 2017


  1. Followed the "Peak oil" crowd for a while. The caveat has always been in the definition of Peak oil. The Bakken has proven that with better techniques far more oil can be extracted then ever thought possible.
    I don't think the "Peakers" ever banked on fracking ever becoming affordable or economical.
    Kinda ruins their entire premise.
    Gotta love American ingenuity and creativity

    1. You are so correct. I, too, was a huge "Peak Oil" advocate for many, many years. But I never realized it was all about the definition. So much could be written about "Peak Oil" and much has been written but it will not be an issue in my lifetime. Or my children's.
