Background

U.S. Representatives Roscoe Bartlett (R-Maryland) and Tom Udall (D-New Mexico) have recently formed a Peak Oil Caucus. They are concerned about increasing evidence for a near term peak and permanent decline of world oil production. After Peak Oil, there will be less energy available for transportation, food production and other critical economic activities.

Chevron Corporation has even been running ads claiming that more oil has been produced than discovered for the last 20 years (see the will you join us? campaign).

For more general information on Peak Oil, see the EnergyBulletin Peak Oil Primer. For a US Department of Energy sponsored report on Peak Oil (written by Dr. Robert Hirsch), see Peaking of World Oil Production: Impacts, Mitigation & Risk Management.
