Crying Sheep over Peak Oil

Yes, the pessimists have been crying wolf for almost a century. But better that, perhaps, than crying “sheep” when the wolves appear.
As usual, Bjorn Lonborg and his kin take a pounding.

Monbiot also explains the underlying reason why Daniel Yergin had no clue to the existence of the Hirsch report. BushCo never formally released it!
In February this year, the department released a report called “Peaking of World Oil Production: Impacts, Mitigation, & Risk Management”.(12) I say “released”, for it was never properly published. For several months the only publicly available copy was lodged on the website of the Hilltop High School in Chula Vista, California.

Thanks to SW for the link a few minutes before I would have found it :)
