Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I fail to see why shale gas should be a temporary solution (except that it, like tar sands, will run out some time in the long run). The resource base is huge, and while the individual wells decline at an incredible pace, you can drill an incredible number of new wells. Indeed, you have to do that. That only tells me Baker Hughes will be busy in the future.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
