Unfortunately, LFT, there was a report done by the CIA shortly after M. King Hubbert let the cat out of the bag and it validated the information -
then Hubbert was marginalized and silence pretty much reigned until the first OPEC scare in the US, and then only the 'green freaks' knew his name
until the mid 80's. Pretty conspiratorial if you ask me.
It is interesting to note the jockying for position of the SuperPowers and their financiers from the mid-fifties onward if one looks at it from an oil
supply standpoint (strategic) only...it explains far more than the cover story of 'cold-war' ever could.
It's sad that you take such an offhand attitude towards a very serious issue. There are no efficient alternatives to oil, nothing today moves
without oil. And we are now retrograde in world oil supply, evidenced by the opening of the oil wars, covered by 'terrorist' pretexts.
Remember, US past peak in mid 70's, Canada past peak in mid 80's, Russia past peak just after Canada (reason for collapse of Communism, balance of
oil sales). The remaining swing share rests in 14 Muslim countries, with lesser amounts in Africa and So. America. By coincidence you will find
hightened US military activity in all these areas now.
PS: The rest of the world won't sit idle and allow the US to be the arbiter of the worlds remaining oil supplies. It's gonna get ugly, and
'terrorism' isn't the reason.
