Infographic on Peak Oil - Who Uses How Much, and Where We Go From Here

by Jaymi Heimbuch, San Francisco, California on 09.13.11

We've all heard of peak oil. At the rate we're consuming oil, we will either begin tapping into pristine wilderness (i.e., Alaska), drilling in areas that are entirely unsafe for drilling (i.e., even farther off-shore in even deeper waters), or we will be forced to make changes in our oil consumption patterns. Carsort, a newly launched website that helps people find "the perfect car" has put together an infographic on Peak Oil. Yes, it's entirely odd for a peak oil infographic to come from a car search website. The infographic looks at where oil resources are, the downsides of going after them, and finally the benefits of moving past peak oil to more sustainable energy sources.

There are some problems with this infographic -- such as that the "Enhanced Oil Recovery" section doesn't have a "downsides" note, which should include the fact that carbon capture and storage is not exactly proven technology. Also, comparing peak oil today to the crash of the whale oil industry in the mid-1800s is a rather apples-to-oranges comparison. Still, the overall lesson of the infographic is clear: moving beyond oil is the cleanest, safest, and smartest solution to peak oil, and to reducing our massive impact on the planet's changing temperature.

What do you think of the infographic? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
