Proactive Responses to Peak Oil:
Protocols and Relocalization
His address at 3rd US Conference on Peak Oil
Yellow Springs, OH / September 2006
Richard Heinberg is
one of the world's most noted
and respected authorities on Peak Oil - the premise that global oil
production will attain a peak when approxi- mately 50% of all
oil is recovered and then decline irreversibly.
A bell shaped curve of increasing, peaking, and
declining global oil production is known as the Hubbert Curve after Marion
King Hubbert. A PhD in geology, math and physics,
Hubbert presented his theory in 1956 before the American Petroleum
Institute and predicted that US oil production would peak in late
60s or early 70s. It did exactly that in 1970 and similar peaks
have been reached in many of the world's oil producing regions.
It is widely believed that global peak oil will occur by 2010..
When this occurs, the impact on all humanity, and
particularly industrialized societies, will be nothing less than earth
