We are floating on an unprecedented level of personal, business, and government debt that is only prolonging judgement day. The (so-called) recession we came through was very different than all previous ones. The depth, breadth, and width was quite extraordinary . . . as has the been "recovery." I do not remember in my lifetime such an anemic recovery. One can only attribute this to peak oil. No other excuse really works for me.
And we have not even slipped over the peak-oil edge.
That's correct pstarr. Don't forget, I don't dispute PO, nor it's effect it will have (eventually). However I firmly believe that it will take another 50 to 100 years till the world population peaks. And that is actually all I care about. I wish I could see it in my lifetime, however I'm not likely to be granted that pleasure.
