We've long known peak oil is now. And I do mean now.
We've long known peak oil will destroy society in a historically unprecedented manner.
We've long known major government think-tanks are preparing for this disaster.

A rate of decline of 5%, for example, would cut production in half in 14 years, just the opposite from a rate of growth of 5% that would double production in 14 years.

It is hard for me to imagine the destruction that a halving of the amount of oil available would bring. Half of the tractors running, half of the trucks delivering, half of the equipment strip mining coal, half of the trains delivering bulk cargo, half of the ships at sea, half of the plastics, half of the oil related drugs, half of the gasoline for personal and employment travel.
