New guy from the peak oil vid

Hey all, I hopped on my youtube account this morning and noticed a staggering number of hits to my "have you heard about peak oil?" vid from this forum. I thought I'd come check it out, and was initially delighted by the conversation it had started, but then disheartened by the devolution into personal attacks and finally a locking of the thread.

Anyway, seemed some people had some questions about it, criticisms and whatnot, and I'd love to answer them. People were asking about sources, I DO have sources for all of the claims made (if I were to use my little animated dude to provide sources...it would be quite a boring video). I'd be happy to provide them.

I love the internet because it allows great discussions to happen, and even though I'm new to this forum, I'd love to help contribute to good discussion.

Welcome to the forum, noodles.


Instead of inviting people to re-open a debate that will go nowhere and isn't what this forum is specifically about...

Why not invite people who want to discuss it to do so in the comments section of the video over at YouTube?

Here's the tinyurl link (can't direct link, or it'll just repost the video here)

YouTube - Have you heard about Peak Oil?
Honda mods: Ecomodding my $800 Honda Fit 5-speed beater
Mitsu mods: Oops, I did it again! Bought another cheap, 3-cylinder Mirage. Mods in progress...
Ecodriving test: Manual vs. automatic transmission MPG showdown

has launched a forum for the efficient new Mitsubishi Mirage

No problem, not intending to rehash any negativity on here...I just enjoy discussing this issue with people. Thanks for adding the link!
