James Schlesinger, the first US Secretary of Energy, died recently. Some links:
- James R. Schlesinger, Willful Aide to Three Presidents, is Dead at 85 (New York Times)
- James R. Schlesinger, CIA chief and Cabinet member, dies (Washington Post)
- James Schlesinger on peak oil (a must read 2012 interview with Mason Inman)
I met Secretary Schlesinger only once, during his talk at the 2010 ASPO-USA conference where he gave his speech proclaiming that the Peakists have won the intellectual debate. Gail Tverberg produced a transcript of the talk for Business Insider. Video below.
