Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There are plenty of things which are relevant from a climate perspective, but which hurts us energetically speaking, making the entire situation even worse. For example CCS. And there are several energy projects which help us but are bad from a climate perspective. Like CNG, tarsands, liquefied coal and ultradeep offshore oil.

Furthermore, as the op-ed illustrates, the IPCC has fooled the public on a massive scale, which hardly helps its credibility when it comes to dealing with other pressing issues like Peak Oil, and also wasted huge amounts of reseach efforts and money, which could have been used in a far better way in eg developing alternative energy.

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