In the wake of deepwater disasters, fear of fraccing and coal mine catastrophes, the whole world is focused on oil and energy. This environment provides Peak Oil watchers with some unique opportunities during this year’s conference in Washington.
With a critical mass of peak oil experts at the Capitol Hill Hyatt, just a short walk from the U.S. Capitol itself, we have decided to launch a collateral campaign to take the conference to the elected officials down the street. Right now we’re calling this effort “Conference Plus.”
In addition to the conference from Oct 7-9, 2010, ASPO-USA is organizing a Senate Briefing, a Congressional Briefing, a major News Conference at the National Press Club, and a number of other activities designed to make our presence, and our message, impossible to ignore. To assist in this effort, we have consulted with some well-respected non-profit groups who know their way around The Hill, and are experts at getting government to do what it is not inclined to do.
“The very words “Peak Oil” seem to often conjure up a scaremongering vision of empty highways. When our UK industry group (ITPOES), after much independent and unbiased research concluded that the peak might come before the middle of the next decade we tried hard to explain what Peak, in our terms means. Globally, we are not running out of oil but our research clearly illustrated that it is going to get fundamentally more difficult to extract the black gold for political, technological and geological reasons and as a result the era of cheap oil is coming to an end. Governments around the world need to plan for this in order to ensure that the scaremongering vision does not to become a reality. Good luck with the ASPO-USA Peak Oil conference and sorry I cannot be there”
