Pandemic lockdowns are coming to an end in the U.S., and with them, a massive economic recovery has begun. The closest parallel is the post-World War II era.

It’s Too Late for Big Oil’s Pivot to a Carbon Tax

A Market Crash AND High Inflation?

Where Energy Modeling Goes Wrong

Where Energy Modeling Goes Wrong thumbnail

There are a huge number of people doing energy modeling. In my opinion, nearly all of them are going astray in their modeling because they don’t understand how the economy really operates. The modeling that comes closest to being correct is that which underlies the 1972 book, The Limits to Growth by Donella Meadows and others. This […]

@gary_agg Climate change is actually #peakoil problem in disguise.. If they openly say oil production drops to 50% in next 5 years, there will so much chaos & disruption among public. We are going to see climate lockdowns and many more in near future. Follow #COP26

My old boss emigrated to NZ because he though #peakoil was imminent some years back. The feared collapse in society didn’t happen mostly because the financial crash caused a demand to fall and then the move away from fossil fuels started. A bullet narrowly dodged though.
