GLOBAL FUTURE ANALYSIS
OUTLINERS | HUBBERT
A post WW II American geologist who was the first who really understood carbon depletion and make very reliable calculation models for it, the founder of the PeakOil theory, which has calculated in 1956 accurately by his model both the US Peak in 1970 and the World Peak on oil production 'in approximately half a century', since 2005 the oil production levels are not much risen but the oil price did severely since than. Was very well know in the US during the 1973 oil crisis and the 1979 oil crisis and had severe influence on the Cater Administration. Has been forgotten as Reagan took over Office and Prudhoe Bay in Alaska, Cantarell in Mexico and the Continental Shelf in Europe came online. Hubbert has been re-discovered by Campbell and his ASPO.
