Knowledge on Peak Oil:
Peaking of World Oil Production: Impacts, Mitigation, and Risk Management. Better known as the "Hirsch Report," this study was prepared for the United States Department of Energy in 2005. It examined the likelihood of imminent Peak Oil and its potential effects, and recommended a set of mitigating actions, stressing that while the problem is unlike other energy crises, it is not insoluble given timely preparation. The recommended time frame to start preparation was 20 years before peak; a 10 year rush transition with moderate impacts is possible with extraordinary efforts from governments, industry and consumers.
