You did not. Do I need to explain the basics of the Peak oil arguement to you, or do you know them? If decline rates didn't matter, people wouldn't make a fuss. If growth rates didn't matter, people wouldn't make a fuss.
I want to know why, more than a year into the post peak world, we aren't seeing the effects of these two fundamental components of the Peak oil theory?
I might venture that the answer has nothing to do with vested infrastructure cost.

Good for you. A man should know his limitations.
I learned everything on my own from books and smart people here at PO and the Oildrum. Unlike you, I do not regulary press my imaginary career in people's noses at every opportunity.

And say. Why is such a high-powered engineer like yourself not out there manning those rigs? The country needs you RGD. Start pumping.
I spent many moons offshore GOM, onshore GOM, and in Canada drilling horizontal and deviated wells. The money was good, the lifestyle was poor.
Research is a much more family friendly career path.
