    This is their broadband edition of their story.

    Basically, in summary, the entire non-OPEC world has already peaked.
    This is demonstrable for anyone reading the data.

    Every person in a first world nation depends on cheap oil for transport, plastics, and food. (We use 10 calories of oil and gas based fertilizers and gas to make 1 calorie of food energy.)

    Without cheap oil, our entire world economy will go belly up and it starts with the airlines going bankrupt. Forget today's prices, what happens at $200 to $300 per barrel?

    The Australian ABC current affairs program "4 Corners" basically concluded last night that we all depend on ever increasing supplies of oil otherwise the world will enter a profound depression.

    Now I know that this is a very emotive subject, but the data is in.

    The non-OPEC world has already peaked. Many countries within OPEC should no longer really be there, because the have peaked and will not be able to Export much longer. (The 'E' in OPEC).

    So what are the official government "business as usual" organisations saying in response? They click their ruby slippers together three times as they say.... "Saudi Arabia, Saudi Arabia, Saudi Arabia".

    Now here's the thing. The Saudi former head of exploration told the New York Times that Saudi production will peak at 15mbd. They already produce 9.5 mbd. Therefore the peak is only 5.5 mbd away.... and the non-OPEC world are losing more and more production annually that must be compensated from.

    What does the ABC conclude? That the whole world is to trust the lifeblood of our civilization to one nationalized energy company that does not allow independent audits! They just say, "Trust me!" ;)

    We've NEVER been deceived by an energy company with poor audits before. (ZZZZzzzzzzzzaaaaaaaaachhhhhhhhhoooooo! Excuse me, I think I have Enron-itis).

    The peak is coming. Get ready for the Greater Depression. None of you are pilots are you? :eek: And no-one here needs to... ummm.... eat?;)

    Yeah, that really didn't work out the way is was "meant to".
    USA is ruled by a guy that thinks nuclear power is renewable power! :confused: I'm just so scared of that man!:eek:

    The scariest aspect of all this is that the 4 Corners show reveals just who has been advising the Australian government on world oil prices, and that the guy is a total and utter moron, not asking the geologists how the reserves look!

    Senators at hearing: "Did you consider peak oil in your reporting on future oil prices?"
    Answer: (from memory) "No, we were not asked to."

    Basically saying the dog ate my homework madam chairperson! is not a satisfactory answer when considering the future of the world's most important resource!

    And, i forgot to add, your point about global war is correct.

    Oil wars have the potential to grow into an unmitigated disaster for the global community. Like, big ones! Wars that make Iraq look like a Sunday School picnic.

    This is why the Oil Depletion Protocol is so important!
