Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
When was the last IEA supply "forecast" based on what-me-worry BAU scenarios for hydrocarbons? Two years ago? Certainly less than three.

I think the IPCC can be forgiven for missing the memo that the IEA has (almost) come to their senses. Particularly when most of the Serious press (and recall that on reserve projections, the IPCC are just interested laypeople) are still using "forecasts" made with [Powered-By-Pony Technology(TM)].

ASPO has been sending peer-reviewed articles IPCC's way for years and years (the latest coal article was mentioned in Science). If they'd denounce and try to debunk the articles, that would be fine by me. Debate is always good. But they haven't even responded. Zero interest. In spite of all their models being completely impossible. 600% increase in coal production? Hello? Are they going to mine Titan?

So why are they ignoring that research? Que Upton Sinclair...

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