I'm not saying it is new. But what I am saying is that I have never really seen anybody take the points on, one at a time and prove them wrong. I'd be interested to actually see somebody do that instead of just call the guy a crackpot.
I've seen it; I'm sure you can find it in more than one place. Mostly it's been a "right-wing" view (for lack of a better term) that we will always keep finding new reserves (e.g. Arctic Ocean), we keep getting more oil out of existing fields (as price increases, viability improves) etc etc. IMHO, anything to avoid conservation, efficiency, and responsible resource management.
They don't believe that the earth is finite, essentially. And of course, a major school of thought maintains that since human ingenuity is
infinite, something like hydrogen fuel cells will save the day before oil runs out. Personally, I'm gonna invest in mechanisms which harness lightning energy.[8D]
Like most things, it seems to come down to
1) what you want to believe and 2) how smart you are [}:)]
