Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
But that is not a theoretical issue. We know how we should design a good system: market pricing and carbon taxation. Hell, if the entire world enacted a carbon tax which was only half the current Swedish carbon tax, this should be enough to avoid going above 450 ppm/2 degrees, at least according to that big McKinsey study on the global cost curve of CO2 emissions.

The problem here isn't that we don't know what to do, but that there are special interests and inertia in the way.

With EROI, the problems and flaws are on a more fundamental level: not even the theory works.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
