Kjell Aleklett : Presentation of the book Peeking at Peak Oil

ASPO was formed 10 years ago in 2002 during the world’s first Peak Oil conference in Uppsala. During the autumn of the year 2000 a number of people had encouraged Colin Campbell to take the initiative to form an organization that would study Peak Oil and inform the world that it faced a great challenge – within 10 years the world’s oil production would reach its maximum level. Together with Jean Leherrere, Colin had described this fact in an article in Scientific American in March 1998. This year’s conference was our tenth and, at the same time, a 10 year jubilee for ASPO. My opening presentation can be downloaded for viewing. You can look at it as I refer to it in the text below. The presentation also shows some of the information and images from my book “Peeking at Peak Oil” that summarises 10 years with ASPO and the work that my research group at Uppsala University has done during the past decade.
