Global oil production plateau since 2005

So global oil production is on a plateau since 2005.
Soon, like next year, we can expect a decline in global production.
The IEA revised it's figures last November - DOUBLING the decline rate.
It went from 3.7% per year to 6.7% per year.
100 / 6.7 gives 15 years.
Ie, all the usable/reachable oil is gone in 15 years. That's 2024.
So maybe we should, just possibly, a little bit maybe, value renewables and value public transport.
