Interview on Australian Broadcasting Corp

Contributed by: Chris

It’s been a very long wait, but my videocast interview with the Australian Broadcasting Corp on June 3rd is finally online. The topic was the problems facing the airline industry due to rising fuel costs. You can view it here.

It was a very technically challenged interview. I was alone in a videoconferencing room in San Francisco with only video of myself, a telephone at my side with the interviewer’s audio, another telephone line ringing constantly in the background (only on my end), and a signficant delay. The uplink quality wasn’t very good either. But it was my first international media appearance, so I’m blogging it for posterity.

Interview with Jim Puplava on the Financial Sense Newshour

August 4, 2008 at 11:14 am
Contributed by:

I did a 53-minute interview with Jim Puplava on his Financial Sense Newshour show last week, which was posted online this past Saturday. Jim is one of the few financial journalists I am aware of who really gets peak oil, and he has done numerous long-format, high-quality interviews with experts like Matthew Simmons. In a world of sound bite journalism, it’s a rare pleasure to be able to talk at length on the subject with a guy who really knows his stuff. You can listen to the interview at the link above, or download it here.

New interview on Yahoo Finance "Tech Ticker" show

July 29, 2008 at 3:37 am
Contributed by: Chris

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!

Part 1: ‘Sky’s the Limit’ for Crude, says Peak Oil Advocate: Buy Drillers, Avoid Majors

Part 2: No Relief from $120 Oil Anytime Soon — or Ever, says Energy Expert

Part 3: The End Is Nigh: Peak Oil Proponent Forecasts Grim Future

Two great thinkers talk about population, energy and the future

July 26, 2008 at 1:07 am
Contributed by: Chris

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.

Announcing a Peak Oil Media Guide

July 9, 2008 at 7:46 am
Contributed by: Chris

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.
