TTC Oct 6th IT2.0 Film showing
George Monbiot recently wrote a piece called ‘We were wrong on peak oil. There’s enough to fry us all’. This was based on a report by the oil executive Leonardo Maugeri. Monbiot concluded ‘Peak oil hasn’t happened, and it’s unlikely to happen for a very long time.’ http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2012/jul/02/peak-oil-we-we-wrong
Now comes a rebuttal by David Strahan in last week’s New Scientist ‘We’re still on the slippery slope to peak oil’. He writes ‘Unfortunately, any reasonable reading suggests Maugeri is wide of the mark’ citing very dubious assumptions and glaring mathematical mistakes by Maugeri as well as a paper from the International Monetary Fund. http://www.newscientist.com/article/mg21528786.300-were-still-on-the-slippery-slope-to-peak-oil.html
If the Monbiot-Maugeri reading was right, the transition movement would have some serious rethinking to do. Strahan, one of the most reliable commentators on peak oil, shows that the peak oil problem hasn’t gone away after all.
