Power Hour Episode 2: Peak Oil with Michael Lynch
On the latest episode of Power Hour—the monthly Internet radio show where I interview today’s top energy experts to discuss today’s top energy issues—I talk to Michael Lynch, President of Strategic Energy & Economic Research, about the widespread theory of Peak Oil: the idea that the world faces an inevitable, imminent, and disastrous decline in oil production.
Here are a few of the many topics we covered:
- The most popular arguments for Peak Oil—do they add up?
- What is the future of oil production around the world?
- Why people keep confidently predicting “peak oil,” even though such predictions have been failing for decades.
- The overlooked role of politics and economics in determining rises and falls in oil production.
