John Robb posts about the economic, military, and security implications of Peak Oil, concluding with the astonishing.
I was surprised to find that nearly all of the top people in the CIA, NSA, DHS, DoD, etc. that I have talked to/with over the last few months didn’t know anything about the topic. Hopefully, I can put this on their forward looking radar.
Are they deliberately wearing blinders? How can it be that top ranking DoD officials know nothing about peak oil and apparently don’t even have contingency plans for the foregone conclusion that oil production has, or will be, peaking soon?
They need to talk to Matthew Simmons of Simmons & Company, Houston investment bank to the oil industry. He’s been warning about peak oil for years.
