Sobre o Pico do Petróleo

Nobody disagrees that a problem is approaching to which there is no solution beyond accepting the naturally imposed limits of the physical system within which we live. Nobody disagrees. Except the economists. But they're idiots. Claiming that if people want a commodity badly enough then other people will find a way to supply it even if the raw materials no longer exist. If we all wanted a pet dodo the Market would supply us.
