To Julian Simon-inspired resource optimists, this is news of the most ho-hum sort. Oh, so we think more resources now are available than previously expected because of improvements in technology? Nothing new under the sun. Humanity’s many-centuries-long trend of energy resources becoming cheaper continues into the indefinite future.
If you believed that world oil production probably peaked in 2006 and we were stuck in a handbasket to oblivion, then you might be surprised.
Otherwise, ho-hum. Move along. Nothing to see here.
