Interview: Profit from the Peak

I am currently reading and taking notes on Brian Hicks' and Chris Nelder's new book, Profit from the Peak: The End of Oil and the Greatest Investment Event of the Century.

The notes are for an upcoming review of the book, which I'll post here tomorrow or early next week (depending on when I can finish it).

In the meantime, those of you interested in the subjects of peak oil, energy investing, and the transition from fossil-fuel energy to alternative energy might enjoy this recent interview with the book's co-author Chris Nelder.

Nelder recently spoke with the Financial Sense Newshour about the looming peak in crude oil production and the investment and lifestyle implications of this event.

While most of the interview seems to focus on the energy background side of the equation, rather than the investing side, I think you'll find a useful introduction to many of the book's concepts here.
