Peak Oil: Fact or Fiction? Resource World Investment Opportunities and News Magazine, Issue 6, Vol. 3 – March 2008
This article presents both sides of the Peak Oil debate. Matthew R. Simmons is a proponent of the Peak Oil theory. On the other side of the debate is Craig R. Smith and Jerome Corsi, supporters of the contrary Abiotic Oil theory. These experts state their cases for or against Peak Oil. In 1956, ‘Peak Oil’ was first defined by M. King Hubbert, a geophysicist who worked in a Houston, Texas research lab for Shell Oil. Peak Oil occurs when “the maximum global petroleum production rate is reached and the rate of production then enters its terminal decline. If the global consumption is not eased before the peak occurs, the accessibility of conventional oil will drop and prices will rise.”
