  •  Hubbert's Peak (0+ / 0-)

    Hubbert's Peak refers, in my understanding, to the production of crude oil.  MK Hubbert predicted, correctly, a US peak in the early 1970s and he wasn't talking about tar sands or shale gas.  The IEA writes that world crude oil production peaked, so far,  in 2006 at around 70 mb/d.  Other fossil fuels, like those tar sands and shale gas, are meeting additional demand but they aren't "oil" the way Hubbert meant.

    But I could be wrong.
