Peak Oil for Treehuggers

Treehugger has posted a very thorough explanation of the concept of "peak oil" and the ideas that surround it. It's a fascinating subject, and I tip my hat to other blogs such as Resource Insights and Peak Oil News that keep a close eye on this topic. I have no doubt that "peak oil" is a valid concept rather than the product of conspriratorial thinking, but I'm a bit more optimistic that some in that I believe we can survive and even thrive a potential fall-off in oil production through sustainable development, resource efficiency, and, perhaps most importantly, reframing the way we think about our relationship to the natural world.. Feel free to try to burst my bubble...
