Is peak oil a hoax? Can it be debunked?
I am already reading for a while on the topic of 'peak oil'.
It's clear for everybody that the industrial revolution arose primarily because of fossil fuels but there is a fight (with words) going on about peak oil. Amongst others, you have Richard Heinberg claiming the end is near (following Hubbert's curve) and there are other people debunking it...
The same reaction as on global warming comes back: Fighting science with science (e.g. Merchants of doubt)
I personally am a believer but how can you handle all this debunking when you want to convince people?
Are there some strong arguments claiming 'Peak oil' can't be debunked?'
Thanks for your insights!
