Peak Oil quotes

What the Experts Are Saying

"We have known for a long time that the status quo, a society that is machine-oriented, competitive, inequitable, fast-paced, globalized, monocultural, [and] corporate-dominated, is deadening to the human spirit and ecologically unsustainable."
– Richard Heinberg, First U.S. Conference on Peak Oil and Community Solutions, November 2004

According to the Association for the Study of Peak Oil (ASPO), global conventional oil production is expected to peak around 2008.

"[People] may find silver linings [in the post peak oil world,] as they rediscover rural living, regionalism, diversity and local markets, [plus] coming to live in better harmony with themselves, each other, and the environment in which nature has ordained them to live."
– Dr. Colin Campbell, ASPO founder, April 2005 Peak Oil Conference, Edinburgh, Scotland

"The problems associated with world oil production peaking will not be temporary, and past 'energy crisis' experience will provide relatively little guidance. The challenge of oil peaking deserves immediate, serious attention, if risks are to be fully understood and mitigation begun on a timely basis."
– Dr. Robert Hirsch, Report prepared for the U.S. Department of Energy, March 2005
