Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It is a great interview - it isn't often that an industry insider is willing to debunk the conventional wisdom.  His book, Twilight in the Desert, is also interesting, and does a good job of making technical points accesible to curious outsiders.  

When people ask me how the current crisis is different from the last one, I usually turn to Simmons.  He pointed out that we have not discovered a truly giant oil field (capable of producting more than 1 million barrels per day) since the early 1970s.  Back then, we still discoverd more oil than we produced every year, but now we produce twice as much as we discover.
