Didn't matter much before, any reason you are worried about the most current peak? Let us say oil did peak again in 2018...has it bothered you much? Because most of the world doesn't seem to have noticed, and we've got the entire concept of peak demand being the primary driver of peak oil now, rather than any of the old scarcity fears.

DesuMaiden wrote: We just haven't felt the effects of peak oil yet because of the covid-19 pandemic temporarily reducing demand. But once the demand for oil goes up after the pandemic is over, the demand will outstrip supply.

And then we'll discover that 2018 was just another peak oil along the way. Like all the others claimed since the modern peak oil movement began in 1990.

Never happened all the other times. But recycling 30 year old ideas and arriving at the conclusion none of the others caused seems a bit counterintuitive.

That is all bullshit and idle speculation
Give one piece of evidence or take it to some other thread, this one is mine and I'd like to keep it at least a little real.
