You may recall the recent post mentioning Daniel Yergin‘s critique of Peak Oil (Pulitzer-prize winning historian.) This is the response from ‘The Oil Drum‘ blog featured on the sidebar of this blog. The arguments in this article are balanced and fair. It is, in effect, an attempt to reconcile the Peak Oil fraternity with that of the ‘Business-as-Usual’ types like Yergin.
I did feel myself thinking, after having read the article, that things may not be as assured as Yergin argues. He might have won the Pulitzer Prize, but he is – after all – an ‘establishment’ figure. So can we believe everything he says or should we take it with a pinch of salt?
