Goldman-Sachs: Global Peak Coal Was 2013


Wow, that doesn’t happen too often: we’re being out-doomed by none other than Goldman-Sachs. The always sympathetic bankers guild has issued a statement saying that not everything is kosher in energy land and that the world is already past peak coal.

We’re shocked. According to our ‘moderate doomer’ wisdom, peak oil is about now, peak natural gas perhaps in 2025 and peak coal somewhere after 2030.

No such luck.

P.S. we are not 100% convinced this is true, not even close. Technology is a major wild card, making predictions unreliable.
