In The Oracle of Oil, Mason Inman examines the history of “peak oil” and the planet’s ever-diminishing resources through the story of M. King Hubbert, the geologist who first realized oil’s days
Author of The Oracle of Oil
I wrote the first biography of geologist M. King Hubbert, often called “the father of peak oil” for his predictions of when oil production—in the U.S. and globally—would reach a peak. He was also a pioneer in examining limits to growth and arguing for a transition to a truly sustainable society that could last hundreds or even thousands of years.
