In researching peak oil, I came across a long article you'd written on the topic in 2014.
Given your interest in this topic, I thought you might want to read my book, just released by W.W. Norton, The Oracle of Oil: A Maverick Geologist's Quest for a Sustainable Future.
It's the first biography of M. King Hubbert, the "father of peak oil," covering his whole body of work but focused primarily on his peak oil predictions and his wider ideas about energy and society.
Last week my book received very positive reviews in both Science and Nature. Quotes from the reviews are below, and links to the full reviews, along with others' comments on the book, are on my website.
For a sense of what the book is like, you can read an excerpt at Scientific American:
"How the Prophet of Peak Oil Explained Fracking in the 1950s"
Science: "The Oracle of Oil is a masterful telling of Hubbert’s life and ideas, written by journalist Mason Inman, a knowledgeable and graceful storyteller."
Nature: "In Hubbert’s story, Inman has found a meditation on the booms and busts that marked twentieth-century economic growth.... In writing the first biography of Hubbert, Inman has retrieved, if not rescued, the story of a scientist who has much to offer to today’s energy conundrum."
