Great discussion. How much is the plateau in oil consumption driven by technology changes away from oil, and how much of it is due to approaching peak oil and easily accessible extraction running out? The cynic in me says it is probably due to price increases due to less easily exctractable oil rather than any altruistic attempt to get off oil consumption.

Also: you guys need to get Timothy Mitchell, author of 'Carbon Democracy' on the pod. (Or have you already? I heard about him from one of my pods - maybe it was this one. It all blends together.) Carbon Democracy I thought was a crazy good book on this topic.
