For Energy and Capital last week, I took a fresh look at how software is enabling the energy revolution by streamlining rooftop solar design, improving home energy efficiency, and putting the “smart” in smart grid.
I appeared on the Financial Sense with Jim Pupalava program today to discuss several new reports and warnings about a near-term peak in oil production, the criminal lack of policy response to the threat in the U.S., and the developing oil export crisis.

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to do a freewheeling, videotaped chat with StockTwits founder Howard Lindzon on the present and future realities of energy. It was a lot more casual and conversational than any previous media appearances I’ve done (at 10:30 PM with a glass of Scotch in hand), so it was more fun, if less professional.
Topics included peak oil, the end of economic growth, reversing globalization, oil prices, alternatives, and lots of other topics. View the video (25 minutes) below the fold.
