All easy to read & understand.

I was more looking for books on both side of the "peak oil" issue I guess from a more scientific standpoint. Not books predicting what the future will be like with or without oil.
For example, I was looking at "Hubbert's Peak: The Impending World Oil Shortage" by Deffeyes as an example of a book that illustrates the argument for an impending "peak oil" crisis or something similar (is this book any good?). Then maybe a book that covered this topic from a scientific standpoint that puts this "peak oil" assumption farther off into the future and states why they believe this to be true.

Are you sure? In my experience lawyers start with the opinion you are paying them to prove, then they gather evidence to support this opinion, and discredit any that doesn't. In that sense, they are no different to anyone else. If you substitute scientist for lawyer I might be more inclined to agree.

Many people tend to relate it only to economic items, like world trade and capital flows, when there clearly are some other big things going on - such as the planet's population going from 5 billion a decade ago to about 8 billion less than a generation from now. Worse, some people imagine that globalization is dark-suited men getting together every Monday morning in Washington or New York to decide howo best to make money by degrading the environment and promotiong poverty and distress throughout the world. More innocently, most people mix up two things: global changes and the failure to respond correctly to them
