You must be referring to tight shale gas, shale oil, oil shale and necessary and very expensive production systems such as THAI, SAGH, and shale horizontal fracturing?

They already are. Otherwise Oilfinder wouldn't be so irritating because he wouldn't have so much evidence to refute the common peak oil meme of scarcity. Otherwise we would have had the Natural Gas Cliff in the US in 2005, instead of a glut. Otherwise the slow but steady march of increased reserve volumes from places like Canada and Venezuela would not have happened, and the BP Annual Review would only show dropping reserves with consumption, instead of increasing ones.
The evidence is already here. You certainly don't need anything more than recent history to prove it, and certainly Hubbert doesn't need to get involved in the least.
It appears from our previous conversations you are unfamiliar with net energy analysis of low-eroei production systems? It's quite obvious to other long term members here, folks not enmeshed in psychological denial or various investor scams, that this highly entropic industrial/financial/retail/consumer infrastructure requires inexpensive free-flowing liquids/gases from appropriate source rocks. Those with high permeabiity and porosity?
Hum? Makes me wonder who you are? You kind of sound familiar? Hum? Shorty>?
