5 Second Explanation of Peak Oil

I'm going to start a series of explanations of Peak Oil and they'll be different lengths. This is good so that you can adapt or choose your explanation for the time or attention span that your audience will give you.

Here's the first, and quickest, explanation:

Five second explanation of peak oil: Oil is finite and non-renewable. We use an increasing amount of oil every year.*

Anyone who doesn't agree with those two principles or cannot come to the conclusion that eventually we will pump, more or less, all the usable oil of the ground is probably a lost cause.

*(Non-renewable in the time spans were are dealing with.) (Oil crunches and recessions excepted for the increasing amount. It's still plainly obvious we use a lot and it goes up every year.)
