At the recent Association for Peak Oil&Gas conference in Cork, Ireland, former US Secreterary of Energy, Secretary of Defense and Director of the CIA, James Schlesinger, told the audience that "We are all peakists now".

He also said that almost all oil company executives now privately believe that peak oil is coming.

In an interview with Lastoilshock.com he touches not only this issue, but also US energy policy, Iran, Iraq and $100 oil.

Listen to the interview here.


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

Well, that is a big change for Schlesinger, who has been a Global Warming denier and who has argued for more aggressive oil exploration as solution to problems.
