 Just changing the short description is fine -- I should have simplified my
message after I realized that was the most logical solution.

I feel like the "temporary unusual circumstances" are the sketchiest part
of the claim. I recognize the tension between not wanting a single freak
event to cause "peak oil" to be called incorrectly, but also not wanting to
force the claim to wait 3 years past the actual event. But it seems like
this is something that can *only* be recognized in hindsight, and the
definition of a "freak event" is going to be so subjective (does OPEC
pumping less because they want to drive the prices up count as a "freak
event?")

I feel like this is going to require a non-subjective waiting time. Either
the full 3 years or shortening it now to 2 years.
