The day when the oil wars started






The title of this video can be translated as "Deconstructing Energy." It was prepared by UNED (Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia) in occasion of the international conference on peak oil held in Barbastro in 2014.

The video is mostly in Spanish, but it starts with an interview in English with the modest me (Ugo Bardi), where I tell the story of how I become interested in peak oil. Also, there are interviews in English to Gail Tverberg, Michael Hook, and Kjell Aleklett. Plus, if you can understand Spanish, you can hear Antonio Turiel, Luis Gonzales Reyes, and Gonzalo Escribano Francés (the last one, you can safely skip).

  2. Sorry to disagree Ugo but I think the oil wars started with the first troop deployments of the first world war, to the oil fields of Iraq. The last twenty years or so are just the end game. Keep up the good work and thanks. Michael

    1. Of course, you are right. But the 9/11 attacks started a new cycle after a lull. And the title of a post has to be compact!

  3. Ugo, did you teach at Berkeley back then? I attended from 1998 to end 2000!
