This puts the maths well….

Just a quiet piece of maths from a contributor to the oil drum…

Even a modest worldwide economic growth rate of 2% will result in a doubling of our resource requirements within 35 years. Does anyone here think that is going to happen and that we’ll consume as much energy during that period as had been consumed from the dawn of history up to the year 2010.

Quite succinct, eh?
