Peak Oil – Visually Explained

A Quick 3 minute video visually explaining Peak Oil, what oil is used for, and what the future may hold with regards to Peak Oil.

This is the culmination of my year-long thesis project looking at how Graphic Design can help communicate a complex topic such as Peak Oil.

  1. Very helpful! I'm going to recommend that my environmental policy professor shows this to future classes 🙂

  2. Unfortunately the human brain is wired to react only when danger is in its face. As long as the lion or bear is over there, you don't have to do anything. Only when that animal is springing at you with teeth bared and claws out will you decide to act.
    Good luck with that

  3. In 1940, 1 calorie of energy was consumed to grow 1 calorie of food.
    Thanks to 'progress', 10 calories are consumed to grow 1 calorie of food.
    Clearly not sustainable in the face of petro geology called Peak Oil.
    Peak Oil is beyond debate having already occurred in 2005.
    Fracking has merely flattened the bell curve for perhaps another 20 years.

  4. I have referenced this video on my new blog site. Please help to spread the word: censorthis . net

  5. >>> 1) Oil is abiotic. It does not take "100 million years to form", it is not a "fossil fuel".

    That little bit of silliness right there is enough to disqualify yourself from further discussion of this matter.

  6. Yeah and actually burning gasoline is astonishingly inefficient. The amount of energy lost through thermal dissipation and in the process of transferring that force mechanically is not something to idolize.
