I had a fun, freewheeling chat with my friend and fellow energy analyst Gregor Macdonald yesterday, which was broadcast today on the Abnormal Returns show on Stocktwits.tv. Gregor and I chat about energy frequently and thought it would be good to share one of our conversations with the public. In this episode, we talk about some of the implications and larger issues around the BP oil spill. (And yes, it was my idea to open with a music bed of “Only The Beginning.”) Video below the fold.
I appeared on the Financial Sense with Jim Pupalava program today to discuss why officials, the media, and the oil industry have been so lagging in their responses to peak oil; the deep institutional and cultural denial about the implications of peak oil on economics; and the need to reinvent our economic theory and cultural ideals.
For background material on this discussion, see my recent articles:

Here is a guest post I wrote for the Association for the Study of Peak Oil (ASPO) – USA’s Peak Oil Review, in which I put the Deepwater Horizon oil spill disaster into perspective against the challenges of energy transition and America’s crushing dependence on oil imports. (Cross-posted to HuffPo)
