Half the oil left - energy crisis - not contradictory.
Well, what this doctor/researcher claims is that that we have a lot more then "50%" of the oil supplies left. That when they "tally" up all the oil we have left, they do not count certain types of deposits and the such when doing these totals. Having studied under him in one of his classes, i am inclined to agree. But the point is kind of mute (as he would say), as he claims while we have a lot more oil then they are letting on, we should not be using it. Lol. Besides, peak phosphorous is something that I would argue is more critical.
Eitherway, we as a species will survive what is to come. It ain't going to be pretty. It ain't going to be nice. But we will prevail... (or at least some of us). Cheers!
