Remembering Dr. James Schlesinger

James Schlesinger, the first US Secretary of Energy, died recently. Some links:

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.

I was going to give Hubbert a medal, when I was back at the Energy Department, for his contributions…. It would have been a useful thing to publicize, what the long, long problem was for the country.
— Dr. James Schlesinger
