Debating Peak Oil

The Oil Drum blog today posted a rebuttal to both a NYTimes article and Scientific American article that it feels painted a far too optimistic picture about our proximity to “peak oil”, in particular pointing to physical possibilities that have a questionable economic reality. It’s an interesting debate which you can find at:

Peak Oil Not a Problem According to NY Times; Scientific American - Our Response on the Financial Aspects

I will warn, however, that this blog tends to be a bit of an echo chamber of “oil peakers” but it’s always worth reading a different point of view if you’re used to the more tame views available in mainstream press.
