I have to give credit where credit is due: Kenneth Deffeyes' book "Hubbert's Peak" was my first introduction to peak oil. And what an eye opener it was!
Below is a recent lecture where he makes the case that we're right at the peak.
Whether he's got the timing right or not, we won't know for a bit, but thank you Kenneth Deffeyes for bringing it to our attention.
