Peak Oil and Peak Everything Lecture at Cornell

I gave this lecture on Peak Oil and Peak Everything on April 19th, 2012 to the students of Professor Bill Schulze’s Sustainable Business class in Cornell University’s school of Applied Economics and Management.

The lecture covers peak oil, the economics behind peak oil, the current state of our energy markets, the substitution to unconventional oil that is taking place and the future of “peak everything”.
