I would definitely have to question the predicted natural gas reserves in that chart. It really doesn't line up with anything I've read about gas supplies. Natural gas may be the cleanest burning, but it's the least reliable fossil fuel by far. The reserves are the smallest, and the decline (because it's a gas, not a liquid or a rock) will undoubtedly be the fastest. Peak coal and Uranium are still largely theoretical, but peak gas is already well under way.

Once you start looking at other resources this way too - EROI, how much has been used historically, and where things are going from here - it becomes very clear that oil is far from the only crucial resource beginning to run dry.
