George W. Bush became US President in 2000 and Dick Cheney became his Vice-President. That means that the speech given by Dick Cheney at the Institute of Petroleum in the autumn of 1999 can be seen almost as an explanation of the political policy that George W. Bush drove during his 8 years as president. The speech lays out the fundamental facts of peak oil and explains the significance of the Middle East for our future. Despite the then ongoing production of oil from deepwater new areas were needed for investment in oil production. The speech also mentions Libya and is particularly interesting considering the 10th anniversary of the start of the Second Gulf War.

Det faktum att George W. Busch blev president år 2000 och att Dick Cheney blev hans vicepresident gör att det tal som Dick Cheney höll på Institute of Petrolium hösten 1999 kan betraktas som en programförklaring för den politik som president Busch förde under sina 8 år. Där klargörs de fundamentala fakta som gäller för Peak Oil liksom Mellanösterns betydelse för framtiden. Trots att djupvattenoljan fanns där behövdes nya områden att satsa på. Förutom Mellanöstern nämns Libyen. Intressant information i samband med Irakkriget för 10 år sedan.
