Peak oil views, news and information:
 
  
As an introduction to the idea, imagine, if you will, a bell curve where the peak is in the middle, and represents the point where 50% of all production has played out.  Assume the latest technology, innovation and wealth is thrown at the problem over and over again, in waves of progress.  After that peak at the top of the curve, no matter what happens next, the decline accelerates. Big discoveries have less impact. Thus a peak now reached; the big opportunities played out; the quality of oil discovered declines; the cost of exploration, production and delivery accelerates, etc.  If this can happen in the USA, then why not the rest of the world?  Something worth thinking about and a highly debated subject. Watch the following video for a quick briefing on the subject:
Video on basics of peak oil - call it "Peak Oil for dummies" -- as another angle for understanding the issue.
