This site arose in response to two seminars I gave in the spring of 2008, at the University of Oklahoma. Copies of the slides are NOT available here, because some of the photos and figures are not necessarily in the public domain.
As an alternative to the slides, I offer the following summaries:
April 15, 2008: The Energy Crisis: A Summary for Meteorologists
The above summaries, together with the links, provide more complete information than the actual seminars.
By the way, my most highly recommended reference on the future of global energy supply is within the PDF document Shell energy scenarios to 2050, available at the Shell.com site. You may want to jump to that straight away.
