Certainly.

More oil per capita is needed to allow for industrialization.


Your statement is wrong on 2 counts.
1. not more oil, but more ENERGY
2. more energy might not be needed at all if used more EFFICIENTLY

You not only get energy from oil but petrochemicals, too. Look up "energy density" as well.

Efficiency in for-profit global capitalism leads to more demand for production and consumption.

Go annoy someone else.

that has nothing to do with your original claim. And you can have industrialization without petrochemicals.

No it does not.

But who?
I have rarely seen a poster that can spout as much wrongness as you do in so few words. As soon as you write 2 words you're wrong. Amazing.

mods I assume, dedicated peakoil enthusiasts who want to keep the ball rolling. It wouldn't cost much per year I'd think. The cost of a domain name can range from $0 to up to $200 a year, depending on factors such as the type of domain name, the registrar you choose, and the keywords used.

I went back through a few of your old posts, you seem to have a good grasp on reality. The first I clicked on was one with you squabbling with the forum troll, Adam_B. Click on his username and you can select Foe to put him on the ignore list. I don't waste my time reading his drivel.
