[permaculture] Is permaculture easy? (was Peak Oil)

I frequent "The Oil Drum" website often and 20-40 years to be the 
consensus among some very savvy oil-industry and Peak-Oil people who 
write there. It's a very rational site, mostly. But we're talking at 
much, much higher prices than we pay now. I didn't mean that it will be 
enough to satisfy demand or pump as much as we are pumping today. Just 
that oil isn't going to be out of the mix for a while yet. It sounds 
like we could pump about 30 million barrels per day by 2040 instead of 
the 90 million we pump now, at least in some of their scenarios. About 
1960 levels, if I remember my numbers right.
