More on the lack of peak oil

Yesterday we explored the lack of peak oil.

I also found an interesting recent article on the?topic at Real Clear Politics.

In a chilling 2010 column, Paul Krugman?declared: ?peak oil has arrived.?

So it?s really not surprising that?the national average for a gallon of gas?has fallen to $2.77 this week ? in 10 states it was under $2.60 ? and analysts predict we?re going to dip below the two-dollar mark soon. U.S. oil is down to $75 a barrel, a drop of more than $30 from the 52-week high.

Meanwhile, the Institute for Energy Research?estimates?that we have enough natural gas in the U.S. to meet electricity needs for around 575 years at current fuel demand and to fuel homes heated by natural gas for 857 years or so ? because we have more gas than Russia, Iran, Qatar and Saudi Arabia combined.

With prices returning to ordinary levels and a few centuries? worth of fossil fuels on tap, this is a good time to remind ourselves that nearly every warning the left has peddled about an impending energy crisis over the past 30 to 40 years has turned out to be wrong. And none of them are more wrong than the Malthusian idea that says we?re running out of oil.

Each time there?s a?temporary spike in gas prices, science-centric liberals allow themselves a purely ideological indulgence, claiming ? as Krugman, Paul Ehrlich, John Holdren and countless others have ? that we?re rapidly approaching a point when producers will hit the maximum rate of extraction of petroleum. Peak oil. With emerging demand, fossil fuels will become prohibitive. And unless we have our in solar panels in order, Armageddon is near. ? Read more »

Barack Obama’s cheif warmist did that last week in this video:

Very early on they use a chart…that is…well..wonky as hell. it is an official White House video and the deceit is astonishing.? Read more »
