Most everything around here is wet during the rainy season. And the rainy season is long.

My guess is that the earth as we know it will be long gone before all the 'recoverable' oil has been burned. At some point, it must just stay in the ground.

Hopefully peak usage is behind us but that's small comfort compared to what is required.

We thought peak oil was in the 1970s, then in the 1980s, then the 1990s, then in the 2000s, then in 2013.
See a trend yet?
