Rather than argue for Heinberg's credibility, folks who are seriously interested in the potential impact of a gradual or a sudden decline in access to fossil fuels, can find volumes of meticulous research and analysis at the Association for the Study of Peak Oil and Gas at:

The analogy to Y2K is a faulty one: fossil fuels are a finite resource and the argument is whether the decline will be sudden or gradual and the impact; Y2K, of course, was not precipitated by a decline in natural resources but computer programmers confidence that date programming conventions would be resolved and corrections made by the time 2000 rolled around. Happily, they were right.
