Just a quick post here to share some things I have been reading today that really deserve a wider audience. If you are at all interested in the data on peak oil and the interpretations of knowledgeable and insightful commentators, you should take a look. The critiques of Monibot, Simmons, Hirsch (and I daresay, myself) of the recent IEA world oil outlook raise crucially important questions that I guarantee you will never see discussed on TV or the radio. We are still sleepwalking toward the precipice of peak oil, and our ignorance is still vast.

A rare good bit of journalism about the peak oil study and our immediate outlook for supply.

When will the oil run out?

George Monbiot (“Britain’s leading green commentator” and a good journalist on peak oil who writes for The Guardian) interviews Fatih Birol, chief economist of the International Energy Agency.

Must-watch video of Monibot interviewing Birol
