Oil Depletion Atlas Peak Oil

An interesting (if overly optimistic) interactive oil depletion atlas of the world. Why optimistic? E.g., it's got Saudi Arabia peaking in 2018 at almost 15 million barrels/day. Don't bet on it.

But even if we accept the optimistic figures, the overall picture is of a world for which peak is no more than a decade away. And the band plays on.
