I particularly like the timeline:
(1) 1930 => Industrial Civilization began when (ê) reached 30% of its peak value. (2) 1979 => ê reached its peak value of 11.15 boe/c. (3) 1999 => The end of cheap oil. (4) 2000 => Start of the "Jerusalem Jihad". (5) 2006 => Predicted peak of world oil production (Figure 1, this paper). (6) 2008 => The OPEC crossover event (Figure 1). (7) 2012 => Permanent blackouts occur worldwide. (8) 2030 => Industrial Civilization ends when ê falls to its 1930 value.
Note 2030 as the date of the collapse of Industrial Civilization. Thom Hartmann, in his excellent book The Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight, seems to concur. See this excerpt: We're Made of Ancient Sunlight. By the way, this is a great book that everyone should read. Similar to Ishmael, by Daniel Quinn, but told in nonfiction form.
Something else just turned up in this area: Pig Manure Can Become Crude Oil. Apparently, this guy has figured out a way to turn manure into oil, which can be used to generate electricity. What will this mean for our doomsday scenario? Perhaps our civilization will collapse in 2031 instead of 2030.
