Peek at oil production

After reading the articles ‘Search for ignition key’ and ‘Clean up our act’ I feel I must write about a subject that few people (if any) like to speak aloud — global oil production peak.


After reading the articles ‘Search for ignition key’ (News, 25 February) and ‘Clean up our act’ (Viewpoint, same issue) I feel I must write about a subject that few people (if any) like to speak aloud — global oil production peak.

Many of your articles on energy hint at this but never say it in black and white. I think it is time the subject was brought into the mainstream instead of discussed on late-night talk shows or the handful of books available.

Do you have any plans for an article that tackles this subject head-on? Or, should I just carry on reading between the lines?
