peaknik
 n.— «Many of the new, nontraditional preparedness converts are “Peakniks,” Mr. Rawles said, referring to adherents of the “Peak Oil” theory. This concept holds that the world will soon, or has already, reached a peak in oil production, and that coming supply shortages might threaten society.» —“Duck and Cover: It’s the New Survivalism” by Alex Williams New York Times Apr. 6, 2008.
