Hi Starrob,

You make some good points and provide some interesting links - thanks for that. I do note that world oil production figures include unconventional petroleum production (shale oil, oil sands, etc.). These resources are vast and have and will certainly reduce the decline rate from peak oil, but as you allude - it is not the cheap, easy oil of the past. In addition to the cost, the rate of recovery will be much slower. It is just technically more difficult that punching a hole and turning a valve like in much of what's being produced now and in the past.

As for congress...
