Your continued observance of some doomer prognostication is completely against the grain of what most of us here think will be the actual effects of Peak Oil.
If you do not like the predictions of Deffeyes, Ruppert and Simmons feel free to tell them about it, I just notice the claim, and them being the Prophets they used to have quite a bit of credibility.
As far as against the grain of what peakers think, I have news, you aren't the only peakers, and quite a few at this site have referenced all sorts of things as PO effects which certainly have not happened. And some experts have proclaimed some terrible things and you know it. The fact that they don't say it ANY MORE is very telling...sort of hard to proclaim that peak oil will stop walmart trucks when A) its happened asccording to the Prophets and B) the walmart trucks still run.
It is not my fault that I notice what was claimed, and what has happened, and I certainly don't limit my view to only what the few regulars here think NOW.

Again, I am only referencing the Prophets. Tell it to Deffeyes, Simmons and Ruppert, all of whom claim peak was 2005.
AirlinePilot wrote: How can the "claimed events" have busted if we haven't peaked yet? You got a logic problem with that with your misunderstanding of what THE peak is.
Tell it to Deffeyes, Simmons and Ruppert...its THEIR claim...I simply notice and reference it appropriately. I'd throw in Lundberg, but he doesn't seem to have as much Peaker street cred and the Prophets.
