Gail E. Tverberg, Is this a false alarm?

Is this a false alarm?
Rebuttal to many of the common arguments against peak oil. Includes: why this is not like 1970s, impact of higher prices, improved technology, Canadian oil sands, oil shale, Jack 2 field, Acrtic National Wild Life Reserve, and other questions.

What about the poor?
Peak oil is an issue for most developing countries only insofar as they are suffering even more now than they already were. This is one of the many reasons why there's no ASPO-Uganda. It's becoming long past peak for the poor, so let's hope they can reorganize their local economies to replace something most of them never had much of to begin with — oil & gas products.
