This article and the subsequent comments are a great demonstration of how the choice of language can really effect debate between peakers and economists regarding oil supplies.

It's really worth taking the time to read the main article and the first few comments at least (there are a LOT of comments which you might not want to wade thru!).

Anyone who's had a failed attempt to win over a doubter (is that all of us?) can probably learn a little from this.
