Tulane Law School and Peak Oil

I have the pleasure of being invited to speak at Tulane Law School's Summit on Environmental Law and Policy, held on April 1st and 2nd of 2011 at the law school in New Orleans, Louisiana. I am very much looking forward to this prestigious event. (link here)

My speech will be as one of three panelists on the topic of Peak Oil, to be held April 2 at 11:45 a.m.. The session is titled, Are We There Yet? The Peak Oil Question. I am on record as stating that Peak Oil is not only not here yet, it will not occur. The other two panelists will, I suspect, take the opposing view.

This is shaping up to be a very interesting time to be discussing Peak Oil, and the energy policy implications of a Peak Oil event. I refer to the recent events in the Middle East, where political systems are in a state of change. The price of oil worldwide has increased as a result, with gasoline prices here in Marina del Rey jumping 40 cents per gallon in just two weeks.

I will add more to this post as time allows. If you are in New Orleans that weekend, this should be a most fascinating summit.
