Weekend: ASPO-USA Peak Oil Conference

Welcome to the Wealth Daily Weekend Edition — our insights from the week in investing and links to our most-read Wealth Daily and sister publication articles. This weekend, the 6th annual Association for the Study of Peak Oil and Gas Conference will take place in Washington, D.C. Attendees will have the chance to rub elbows with respected peak oil experts and listen to a panel of international speakers who will discuss the complex socioeconomic and geopolitical impacts of peak oil on economies and the future of energy. Among the distinguished conference guests who will gather on Capitol Hill are former CIBC Chief Economist Jeff Rubin, former Secretary of Energy James Schlesinger, policy expert Ralph Nader, and climate and energy advocate Bianca Jagger. A host of peak oil scientists will be joined by U.S. Representative Roscoe Bartlett, and energy analysts, including Dr. Bob Hirsch, Dr. Roger Bezdek, and Charlie Maxwell.

A conference such as this one should be a pre-requisite— a 101 class for the handful of anti-peak hacks that can’t tell the difference between easy-to-get-to and hard-to-get-to oil. Jim Cramer might find a conference like this worthwhile. He simultaneously doesn’t “subscribe” to the Peak Oil Theory (his own words), yet defines it at the same time: “We’re not running out of oil at all. We’re just running out of oil that is easy to find and easy to get at. There are vast reservoirs, vast, far more than we need for multiple years. It’s just not where we want it. So I don’t subscribe to Peak Oil theory. What I do subscribe to is the cost of oil is going to be so much higher that the cost of oil is never going to come back below $40 ever again.” It’s true that we have a couple trillion barrels here in the United States. There are 500 billion barrels in Orinoco tar sands, and another 170 billion in the Alberta tar sands. But no one ever …
