Well, peak oil has already caused (or been a contributing factor to) the end of the world - or, at least, the end of the world as we know it. As you have said in the past (and as Richard Heinberg argues, well, in his new book), we're seeing the end of growth. The last 3-4 years haven't been what people had come to regard as "normal" and for many people it may well feel like the end of the world.

Peak oil was the most prominent limit that we've hit but it's not the only one. No one can see the future so we don't know how everything plays out but I'm pretty much convinced that the world will never be like it was 4 years ago.
