  •  Why do you have to resort to ad hominem attacks? (0+ / 0-)

    You are only making yourself look foolish.

    Your acceleration argument is a red herring. If you don't know what that means, please look it up.

    Besides that you have a faulty red herring. Your figures are wrong. (Strangely, 11.5 is correct for 1991 - 1998)

    You cherry picked the years. Percent increase in world oil production using half decades:

    1980 - 1985   -9.4%
    1985 - 1990   12.1%
    1990 - 1995     3.2%
    1995 - 2000     9.7%
    2000 - 2005     7.5%

    These figures signify nothing and are still a red herring.

    •  I see you left out the last 7 years (0+ / 0-)

      of course you did, it would demolish your point

      •  Still flogging that dead horse? (0+ / 0-)

        The numbers are publicly available. Do your own math.

        Your point is the one being demolished. My only point is that you don't know what you are talking about.

        You somehow look at this table that shows that we are extracting ever more oil, year after year and then jump to the totally illogical conclusion that we are running out of oil.

        Your conclusion is not supported by the facts.

        Now if you could somehow make a graph of these figures and make a testable prediction, I would love to be proved wrong.
