A Debate About Peak Oil

Amy Goodman hosts a debate between two energy experts on the controversial theory of "peak oil."

"With the price of oil soaring to record highs and oil companies reporting record profits, many are asking whether the world has reached peak oil production.

We host a debate on the issue with Julian Darley of the Post Carbon Institute and Michael Lynch of the Strategic Energy & Economic Research."
