There seems to be a push toward marginalizing the reality of Peak Oil. Climate science discussions and blogs argue over the [RCP8.5 projection for CO2 emissions](https://www.carbonbrief.org/explainer-the-high-emissions-rcp8-5-global-warming-scenario) -- what has typically been called the *business-as-usual* scenario -- and whether this will actually transpire due to the lack of sufficient known reserves of crude oil and high-grade coal. So what was previously known as a BAU projection is now referred to as a high-emissions scenario.

It's gotten to the point that at least one of the climate science blogs, the moderators would rather allow comments written by fossil fuel cornucupians than to allow some realism be discussed
