Last month I attended the Association for the Study of Peak Oil USA conference in Sacramento. I'm finally getting around to posting the audio I recorded at the conference and thought one of them would be interesting to this crowd. Everything is being posted through my podcast, the home page for the podcast is here: http://www.7gen.com/technosanity
Technosanity #14: Petroleum & Peal Oil 101 was given by Dr. Ken Verosub, a geology professor at U.C. Davis. He gave a high level overview of the science behind how this planet produces oil, the model behind the peak oil claims, and a few simplistic calculations related to near term production of oil and the looming crunch in oil demand versus oil production.
