Peak Oil 2010 Executive Summary Report on ASPO-USA

Peak oil is here now. It is about flows and natural limits. ASPO-USA, the Association for the Study of Peak Oil and Gas held its annual conference and meeting in Washington D.C. in 2010. Energy director for the Michigan Environmental Council, David Gard, attended the conference, and provides an in depth executive summary for those already familiar with peak oil.

David Gard’s talk was recorded in high definition at the International Conference on Sustainability: Energy, Economy & Environment organized by Local Future and directed by Aaron Wissner.

    Peak oil, peak coal and the subsequent rise in price will make all forms of alternative energy more cost competitive.

    The time to ramp up alternative energy production is now. Wind, solar, geothermal and second generation biofuels all need to ramp up production.

    The world economy and globalization were built on cheap oil. We need to transition to alternative energy before the impact of high oil prices does significant damage to the world economy.

    When oil went to $147 / barrel in 2008 and suddenly families had to spend an extra $300 or more on transportation fuel each month there was little money left over to pay things like the mortgage.

    High oil prices will have a significant impact on the economy and on every family. We need to ease the impact by speeding up the transition to alternative fuel sources. It is time to end the oil monopoly on transportation fuel.

    Fueling stations need to offer gas, ethanol, diesel, biodiesel, CNG, electric charging stations and battery swap out points. Bring on the flex-fuel and electric vehicles. If Brazil can reduce it dependence on oil for transportation so can the rest of the world.
