66. SIMMONS, ALEKLETT AND HIRSCH SAY DOOM IS BALONEY
Unfortunately, the transcripts have not been published yet, but this report is from Starvid, who attended a Peak Oil seminar on May 23, 2005 in Uppsala, Sweden Link:
Hello everyone, I just got a close look at Matthew Simmons, Kjell Aleklett and Robert Hirsch with my own eyes! :)
They were at the Industry Contact Day - Global Oil Reserves - Hopes and Reality, a Peak Oil seminar in Uppsala.
They did say some interesting things, for example:
* They all think Peak Oil is a very grave issue, but they also think the doomers are wrong. On a specific question they said Richard Heinberg was very much to pessimistic.
Doomer issue: They meant Heinberg was to pessimistic on technology and uh, society. They didn't believe that the end of the world was near, but that we would, and I quote, "muddle through".
