peak oil and free energy

Peak oil and free energy? :
I am not sure about the free energy part (but I am willing to remain open minded).
The Peak Oil has got me concerned, though...

From the Arctic's glaciers to Saudi Arabia's oil fields

The ability of the media and the people to gloss over the most important news of the day can be quite unnerving.

Today an article says that Arctic winter ice cover shrinks to all-time low:

Satellite measurements show the area covered by Arctic winter sea ice reached an all-time low in March, down some 300,000km2 on last year.

Scientists say that the decline highlights an alarming new trend, with recovery of the ice in winter no longer enough to compensate for increased melting in the summer. If the cycle continues, the Arctic Ocean could lose all ice earlier than expected, possibly by 2030.
