Sofia Arkelsten, Shell och resan till Frankrike

October 30, 2010


(This is mostly of interest for Swedes) I debatten runt Sofia Arkelstens ”bjudresa” av Shell har Peak Oil nämnts. Den 13 juli är hon i London på en miljökonferens och i ett inlägg skriver hon: “James Smith boss för Shell talar sen. Lite oväntat måste jag ändå säga. – Jag håller med Jim, säger han. […]

Australia October 2010: Days in Sydney – report nr 1

October 29, 2010


It is wonderful to be invited to Australia and to travel from east to west on a sales campaign for Peak Oil and our research.

Has Texas passed the Peak?

October 5, 2010


(Swedish below) I have already described my arrival in Houston and it is now time to summarise two days in the heart of the oil state Texas. My conviction that one cannot survive here without a car has been strengthened. While driving around I discovered that, certainly, there is a tram line that runs from […]

Matt Simmons remembered in Houston

October 5, 2010


About 400 people came to the Museum of Fine Arts to honour the memory of Matt Simmons. Despite the tragic fact that Matt is no longer with us it was a bright celebration.

Tomorrow there will be a silent remembrance for Matt Simmons and it is still difficult to accept that Matt will not be with us […]
