Peak Oil, Shmeak Oil says Woods

I subscribe to Peak Oil theory, which says there's a finite amount of oil in the ground and that we're approaching the time when the amount we extract is going to begin to decline. But because it's complicated and hard to prove, I could be wrong, and you need to see this.

Thanks to Thomas Barnett (whose blog I read daily) for posting this piece. Highlighting energy consultant Michael Lynch's recent case that Peak Oil theorists are wrong and that there's plenty of global Texas Tea for the foreseeable future, Barnett knows is going incite a (not necessarily quiet) riot. Regardless, we need input on all sides of this most central of debates.
