Heinberg states this in the opening of Peak Everything:
"Nor does the matter end with natural gas and coal. Once one lifts one's eyes from the narrow path of daily survival activities and starts scanning the horizon, a frightening array of peaks comes into view. In the course of the present century we will see an end to growth and a commencement of decline in all of these parameters:
Grain production (total and per capita)
Fresh water availability per capita
Arable land in agricultural production
Wild fish harvests
Yearly extraction of some metals and minerals (including copper, platinum, silver, gold, and zinc) "
