Puplava on the coming oil crisis

Jim Puplava's Financial Sense, 14 July (3rd hour transcript): this leads with the coming energy crisis, especially in oil. Puplava's programme features an interview with Basil Gelpke, who has made a documentary on oil called "A Crude Awakening".

Demand is rising, and will continue to do so even if there is a world economic slowdown, because the developing world aspires to Western standards of living; supply is not keeping pace, as exploration and extraction become more difficult and expensive. R&D in alternatives has been inadequate. The crunch could start as early as 2009.

Jim draws two broad conclusions:
  1. Prepare to live in a world where energy is much more expensive. There are obvious implications for your transportation and housing.
  2. Invest in energy stocks.
