On this Podcast we burn the midnight oil on a journey to the point of Peak Oil. A hypothetical and yet seemingly inevitable point at which the global production of fossil fuel hits it’s maximum and enters a period of rapid decline ending in complete exhaustion. Leading to a situation where Earth’s booming population growth is faced with the loss of the energy source that has been THE driving factor behind the industrial revolution and technological advancements of modern society. The predictions for life after Peak Oil speak of a world where demand for fuel shall have unprecedented ramifications on economies and resources and see an end to the world we now know. We’ll cover the science and theory of the Peak Oil debate and what it means for our way of life and future generations.
