Top Energy Myths of 2013

Kurt Cobb writes on seven persistent energy myths of 2013 in a year-end review. Forbes contributor David Blackmon predictably responds not by examining or debating any of Cobb's points, but instead by calling him a "cultist." Because in Blackmon's world, simply uttering the phrase "Peak Oil" is enough for him to print you a "cult" card.

Oil is a finite resource and so, the real debate is over the timing of peak oil production for the world as a whole. Some say the peak is nearby. Others say it is two or three decades away. But no credible expert says that there will never be a peak.
