"Let the bastards freeze in the dark"

A reputed oil industry insider, a petroleum geologist to judge by the style and references, writes that peak world oil production is an accomplished fact. He submitted his observations anonymously, but his analysis is too subtle to be that of an amateur. He focuses not on the geological constraints, but on the infrastructure constraints that have led, in his opinion, to peak oil production. His churlishness comes from the low regard of the public for oil companies. After having been maligned for so long, he says that the consensus in the oil industry is, "Let the bastards freeze in the dark."
