M. King Hubbert & Peak Oil _on Ecoshock
ECOSHOCK —M. King Hubbert & Peak Oil
the man and the movement – is it dead? — Where is peak oil in the current glut? Mason Inman, author of “The Oracle of Oil” (M. King Hubbert) with a life that became a movement. Plus Australian scientist Lisa Alexander: another perspective on the Indian heat wave.
This week we’re going to look at a life that shaped energy expectations, a whole social movement, and American military policy in the Middle East. Finally, there is a biography of M. King Hubbert, the man who warned oil companies and the world about Peak Oil. We’ll ask author Mason Inman about the man, his legacy, and what it means now, in this brief time of oil glut.
Then I’ll check in with Australian extreme weather specialist Lisa Alexander, to get her measure of the record-setting Indian heat wave now cooling to the monsoon rains.
Speakers: Mason Inman, Lisa Alexander. Interviews by Alex Smith for Radio Ecoshock. Occasional music by Alex Smith.
