I see the heartbreak is spreading. I, too, teach peak oil, but as a research project in a college writing class. I discovered the very articles you mention 2 1/2 years ago, and realized to my shock that I learned about this in 1981, in a geology course in Toledo, Ohio. One of my favorite professors there, Craig Bond Hatfield, even wrote and early warning back in 96 (?) called "How Long Can Oil Supply Grow?" Look it up. He sets the template for a lot of the commentaries you see now. Luckily, my partner and I have been living a semi-subsistence lifestyle on a farm for two decades now, and we could "probably" live pretty comfortably if there should happen to be a hard landing. I'm finding that the subject of peak oil either grabs people or it doesn't. I've warned all my friends and family about it, but I only "talk oil" with those who bring the subject up. I'm with you in that I have no hope for either a government or a "market" solution. There will be "demand destruction," of course, but as far as who gets destroyed........
