Anyone seen this?

Just wondering what the homegrown energy crowd thinks of this theory.

I vote for the conspirist's theory that the oil "crises" is all BS
manufactured to drive up energy prices to make a select few rich people much
much richer.

Create a crises - make drastic and costly changes - reap the benefits.
Create a new crises.

It's all fear mongering.

 Well now, you have less knowledge than the original author, a political
science major and lawyer. At least neither of you are making energy policy.

 You're right - I don't have a PhD in "Oil Crises" to make me the recognized
expert in the field.  Perhaps I will go to back-woods-U for a few years and
buy one! 8-)

Good thing I didn't do it back in 1970 as I would have egg on my face right

Sounds a bit like scare tactics to me, but not too far-fetched.

If the tree huggers get their way, exploration and development will be
stopped in the USA, Canada, and most of Europe, and we will be totally
dependent on oil from hostile countries. This is not a good scenario, and
will cause energy prices to skyrocket. We all know what happens to the
economy when energy prices go up!

The tree huggers are making it very expensive for the oil companies to
explore, so we don't know what current reserves truly are.

Unless China's oil consumption explodes (as I fear it will), we will have
plenty of oil in our lifetimes. In 25-30 years, coal, hydro, and nuclear
will be the ball game.
