As I alerted you a few days ago, I did a video interview yesterday with Aaron Task for the Yahoo Finance “Tech Ticker” show, at their studio in Times Square. Check it out…and if you want a good laugh, read the comments threads!

Gotta bring these two pieces on population to your attention, because they’re so good, and I have a huge respect for these guys. If you’re able to stomach a solid, unvarnished, scientific perspective on everything, check these guys out. Basically, I agree with every word of both. Unfortunately, selling this message, as critical as it is, seems nigh impossible. If you have any ideas, I’m all ears…
First, a recent interview with famed environmentalist Paul Erlich, who wrote The Population Bomb. Watch the video.
Second, this recent screed (below) from Dr. Albert Bartlett, who’s standard lecture on population I have referenced many times…In my opinion, it should be a required part of every high school curriculum.

In this week’s Energy and Capital, I offer my perspective on the Plug-In 2008 Conference, devoted to plug-in and electric cars. There were some exciting visions in play, and a couple of interesting vehicles. In particular I liked badboybuggies.com.
I’ll be traveling next week, and doing a podcast on Monday morning on my friend Aaron Task’s Tech Ticker show at Yahoo Finance, check it out. Live from Times Square…then off to brainstorm some new ideas on how to deal with peak oil.

In this week’s column for Energy and Capital, I review the crippled state of the financial markets, and address another load of horrible ideas out of Washington D.C. for how to deal with the energy crisis.
I did a 45-minute telephone interview for a podcaster/blogger this week. The interviewer is a strong proponent of nuclear power, and was disappointed with my coverage of nuclear power in the book, but on most other points about the greater energy challenge, we agreed.

In order to address some of the confusion about energy in the media, I have developed a new “Peak Oil Media Guide.” I have invited all knowledgeable experts to provide comments and informed criticism, and have already received some good input. I hope it will be a “living document” that evolves over time, with widescale collaboration, and be useful to those of us who address the media. It was originally announced and published by the Association for the Study of Peak Oil – USA.
You can download the full PDF here: Peak Oil Media Guide.
For those who prefer a Word doc format, you can download it here: Peak Oil Media Guide (Word format). However this version may not be kept up to date.
The main points of the Guide (without the charts) are summarized below.

In this week’s article for Energy and Capital, I contend that while most of the economy still has a long way to fall, energy and commodities will yield standout gains.
Stay tuned for more guest editorials coming up in the next week.
