I just looked at the the charts of peak oil production and population growth. I was confronted with the theory of oil fueling excessive population growth since the 1950īs. Makes you wonder what road world population is going to take. If population size is going to follow oil, then the road down is going to get nasty. A few billion people are not going to go away without making some noise.
