  16. 16. The Hirsch Report • World oil peaking is going to happen, and will likely be “abrupt and revolutionary”. • Oil peaking will adversely affect global economies, particularly those most dependent on oil. • Effective mitigation will be dependent on the implementation of mega-projects and mega-changes at the maximum possible rate. • Government intervention will be required, but economic upheaval is not inevitable. • Scenarios: 0, 10, 20 years before peak.
