1 PvH’s Peak Oil Riot Act November 19, 2009 Phil von Hake, “Alternative Transportation Options” Colorado Renewable Energy Society (CRES) PvH’s Peak Oil Riot Act Phil von Hake Colorado Renewable Energy Society November 19, 2009 “a message to help clear the air”

2 PvH’s Peak Oil Riot Act November 19, 2009 Phil von Hake, “Alternative Transportation Options” Colorado Renewable Energy Society (CRES) GASOLINE PRICES: Still Historically High

3 PvH’s Peak Oil Riot Act November 19, 2009 Phil von Hake, “Alternative Transportation Options” Colorado Renewable Energy Society (CRES) GASOLINE PRICES: Who’s to Blame?

4 PvH’s Peak Oil Riot Act November 19, 2009 Phil von Hake, “Alternative Transportation Options” Colorado Renewable Energy Society (CRES) PROBLEM: Peak Oil

5 PvH’s Peak Oil Riot Act November 19, 2009 Phil von Hake, “Alternative Transportation Options” Colorado Renewable Energy Society (CRES) Source: Kyriacos Zygourakis / PROBLEM: Peak Oil

6 PvH’s Peak Oil Riot Act November 19, 2009 Phil von Hake, “Alternative Transportation Options” Colorado Renewable Energy Society (CRES) PROBLEM: Peak Oil

7 PvH’s Peak Oil Riot Act November 19, 2009 Phil von Hake, “Alternative Transportation Options” Colorado Renewable Energy Society (CRES) PROBLEM: Peak Oil “My grandfather rode a camel, Sheikh Rashid Bin Saeed Al Maktoum ( ) Emir of Dubai ( ) my father rode a camel, I drive a Mercedes, but his son will ride a camel.” my son drives a Land Rover, his son will drive a Land Rover,

8 PvH’s Peak Oil Riot Act November 19, 2009 Phil von Hake, “Alternative Transportation Options” Colorado Renewable Energy Society (CRES) U.S. Oil Imports as a Percent of Consumption PROBLEM: USA’s Increasing Dependence on Imported Oil

9 PvH’s Peak Oil Riot Act November 19, 2009 Phil von Hake, “Alternative Transportation Options” Colorado Renewable Energy Society (CRES) PROBLEM: Declining Dollar (making imports more expensive)

10 PvH’s Peak Oil Riot Act November 19, 2009 Phil von Hake, “Alternative Transportation Options” Colorado Renewable Energy Society (CRES) PROBLEM: “The Easy Stuff is Gone” “Platts’ estimate of aggregate capital obligations (oil & gas development, refining, and transportation) between 2007 and 2030 is $21.4 trillion.” Larry Chorn, PhD Chief Economist Then: Now:

11 PvH’s Peak Oil Riot Act November 19, 2009 Phil von Hake, “Alternative Transportation Options” Colorado Renewable Energy Society (CRES) PROBLEM: “The Easy Stuff is Gone” “If the world wants to keep using energy from oil and gas, it will have to rebuild the infrastructure … and the cost of doing this could rival the combined cost of the World War II war machine, the post-war Marshall Plan that rebuilt Europe, and the post-war build-out of the U.S. interstate highway system.” Matthew Simmons, “Investment Banker to the Energy Industry” – May 6, 2008 $50 – 100 trillion over the next 8 – 10 years!

12 PvH’s Peak Oil Riot Act November 19, 2009 Phil von Hake, “Alternative Transportation Options” Colorado Renewable Energy Society (CRES) PROBLEM: “The Easy Stuff is Gone” AND all of this new spending on oil & gas infrastructure would be to convert NON-RENEWABLE sources of energy into the fuel we need!

13 PvH’s Peak Oil Riot Act November 19, 2009 Phil von Hake, “Alternative Transportation Options” Colorado Renewable Energy Society (CRES) PROBLEM: Geo-Politics of Oil

14 PvH’s Peak Oil Riot Act November 19, 2009 Phil von Hake, “Alternative Transportation Options” Colorado Renewable Energy Society (CRES) PROBLEM: Few Viable Alternative Fuels

15 PvH’s Peak Oil Riot Act November 19, 2009 Phil von Hake, “Alternative Transportation Options” Colorado Renewable Energy Society (CRES) PROBLEM: Global Warming (and added costs for carbon emissions from burning oil)

16 PvH’s Peak Oil Riot Act November 19, 2009 Phil von Hake, “Alternative Transportation Options” Colorado Renewable Energy Society (CRES) PROBLEM: Global Warming = More Pirates!

17 PvH’s Peak Oil Riot Act November 19, 2009 Phil von Hake, “Alternative Transportation Options” Colorado Renewable Energy Society (CRES) RESULT: Peak Oil + More Imported Oil + Geo-Politics of Oil + “The Easy Stuff is Gone” = + Few Viable Alt. Fuels + Declining Dollar + Price on Carbon Emissions - More Pirates

18 PvH’s Peak Oil Riot Act November 19, 2009 Phil von Hake, “Alternative Transportation Options” Colorado Renewable Energy Society (CRES) “America is addicted to oil, which is often imported from unstable parts of the world.” George W. Bush 2006 State of the Union Address “America has got to change its habits. We have got to get off oil.” George W. Bush March 5, 2008

19 PvH’s Peak Oil Riot Act November 19, 2009 Phil von Hake, “Alternative Transportation Options” Colorado Renewable Energy Society (CRES) “While the financial crisis is like asthma or tuberculosis to the economy, a gasoline supply crisis could be terminal cancer.” Matthew Simmons / October 3, 2008 What About the Recession???

20 PvH’s Peak Oil Riot Act November 19, 2009 Phil von Hake, “Alternative Transportation Options” Colorado Renewable Energy Society (CRES) BUT both challenges of Global Warming and Peak Oil share similar solutions: Use the fossil fuels we have left as EFFICIENTLY as possible, and Switch to more SUSTAINABLE (i.e., renewable, non-polluting) energy sources as quickly as possible!

21 PvH’s Peak Oil Riot Act November 19, 2009 Phil von Hake, “Alternative Transportation Options” Colorado Renewable Energy Society (CRES) Find Out More About Peak Oil:

22 PvH’s Peak Oil Riot Act November 19, 2009 Phil von Hake, “Alternative Transportation Options” Colorado Renewable Energy Society (CRES) Thank You! Phil von Hake “a message to help clear the air”
