At the end of last week I was contacted by Terry Macalister who is a journalist at The Guardian. He wanted my views on what was discussed recently in the article, ”Peak oil alarm revealed by secret official talks”.

The article reveals that there is greater concern within government authorities about Peak Oil than is officially acknowledged. Without going into details I can support that. The final words of the article were, “The IEA has denied the claims of internal dissent and sticks by its figures. But Kjell Aleklett, a professor of physics at Uppsala University in Sweden and author of a report The Peak of the Oil Age, claims crude production is more likely to be 75m barrels a day by 2030 than the “unrealistic” 105m projected by the IEA.”

Our article on “The Peak of the Oil Age” was accepted for publication by the scientific journal Energy Policy on 9 November 2009. It was published online on 1 December 2009 and was printed in Volume 38, Issue 3, March 2010, Pages 1398-1414. If you cannot download the article you can read it as
preprint” here.

I slutet av förra veckan blev jag kontaktad av Terry Macalister, som är journalist på The Guardian. Han vill ha mina synpunkter på det som diskuteras i artikeln ”Peak oil alarm revealed by secret official talks”.

Av artikeln framgår att det finns en större oro för Peak Oil än vad man officiellt erkänner. Utan att specificera kunde jag styrka det. Slutord i artikeln blev:
“The IEA has denied the claims of internal dissent and sticks by its figures. But Kjell Aleklett, a professor of physics at Uppsala University in Sweden and author of a report The Peak of the Oil Age, claims crude production is more likely to be 75m barrels a day by 2030 than the “unrealistic” 105m projected by the IEA.”

Vår artikel om ”The Peak of the Oil Age” accepterades av Energy Policy den 9 november 2009, publicerades på nätet den 1 december 2009 och kom i tryck som Volume 38, Issue 3, March 2010, Pages 1398-1414. Om ni inte kan ladda ner artikeln kan ni läsa artikeln som ”preprint”.
