Congressman Roscoe Bartlett Notes Peak Oil 50th Anniversary

Wednesday, March 8, 2006

Congressman Roscoe Bartlett has joined a tribute to M. King Hubbert on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of his first speech identifying peak oil, that has come to be known as “Hubbert’s Peak.” “There is no other single name so connected with energy and oil as M. King Hubbert,” says U.S. Congressman Roscoe Bartlett (R-MD). “His pioneering work has been quoted by just about everyone who is interested in the subject. His influence cannot be overestimated. He was a giant.”

Congressman Bartlett said, “Hubbert predicted in 1956 that the United States would peak in oil production in 1970 and he was right on. Oil production in the United States has declined every year since then. 33 of 48 major oil producing nations have now peaked. Today, experts differ only on the timing of global peak oil, but many predict it’s imminent.”

“Awareness of the need to address global peak oil is growing rapidly,” said Congressman Bartlett. “Secretary of Energy Bodman recently said, “…for the first time in my lifetime, we have, I'm seeing an inability of the suppliers to keep up with demand.’”

More information about M. King Hubbert can be downloaded from a new website: Other interviews include Richard Heinberg, Albert Bartlett, Megan Quinn, Pat Murphy, Walter Youngquist, Ron Swenson, Kenneth Deffeyes, Matthew Simmons, Stewart Udall, Jan Lundberg, Colin Campbell and Steve Andrews.
