A Feb. 8, 2005, report prepared for the U.S. Department of Energy titled "The Mitigation of the Peaking of World Oil Production" puts it this way, "The world has never faced a problem like this. Without massive mitigation more than a decade before the fact, the problem will be pervasive and will not be temporary. Previous energy transitions were gradual and evolutionary. Oil peaking will be abrupt and revolutionary."
