Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The denier's photo is invasive enough, Starvid, but is the whole, large company logo really necessary (visual contamination)?  Very annoying.

Well, I like pictures in my stories and it felt a little old with just the generic oil rig, especially as the focus was to such a large degree the man in question, and the fact that he had just recently been the CEO of a big oil company.

Hence, the pic shows the man and the company logo.

But the next time I'll do a diary like this I'll leave out the product placement, at least in the preview part. ;)

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.

I'll be generous and assume the sand in your eyes... (sound of crazy horse shutting up.)

on second thought I'll just let your statement stand on its own wobbly feet.

I had not noticed this.

When I heard Mr Buckee  speak I was surprised to have him mention Peak Oil and that he had just come via a APSO meet.

Here is a link to a conference paper he gave
http://www.aspo-ireland.org/contentfiles/ASPO6/1-4p_ASPO6_JBuckee.pdf

excert from the pdf:

...
Industry fights declines every day
No opposite of a train wreck
Resource nationalism is rampant
...

Not wanting to sound to much of a marketista for the company I am working for, but or him Peak Oil is the only reason, Talisman works and can prosper. Only the higher oil costs justify the enourmous investments needed, and in his opinion Talisman is one of the market leader on squeezing out the last drops off oil fields. ...

Because there is Peak Oil and its consequences, Talisman makes money.

I am assuming you are questioning
"Because there is Peak Oil and its consequences, Talisman makes money."

Yes?

I'll answer this when I am back at home...

No, I understand that about Talisman. I don't understand what "no opposite of a train wreck" means.

well, there goes my hermeneutics -- again. Read slow and carefully PeWi - and you would have made the whole thread obsolete.

doh.
