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.
