Maxwell says that alternative energy is still far too small a portion of our energy consumption to make a difference. Conservation will be the only way to manage dwindling supplies.

Olivier Ludwig interviews Maxwell for the Financial Post:

"MAXWELL: Globally, I believe we're quite close to the peak, simply because we've gone from 6% increases in production to 3% per year increases, to half a percent per year increases. I think peak will come between 2015 and 2017. So, we're nearly on it."
