Leeb (and Leeb) had an earlier book called the Oil Factor..good but the new book covers most of the territory...
Going to be interesting..the majors are scrambling to 'maintain' their reserve numbers...and not all reserves are equal...tar sands are hard and slow to produce...you just don't drill another well..you open another 5 billion dollar mine and a 5 billion dollar processing plant to get 250,000 bbl/day.
Some wells in Saudi almost flow that much oil a day..one well!...
But that is history...most of them are at 1/10th that now....
Kunstler's advice...head for the farms...and small towns....learn farming....and a useful 1860s type trade...blacksmith.....harness making...farming...milling.....
