Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I am missing why Heinberg is such an 'expert', let alone a 'top scientist'.

 Even on his own website, he careful describes himself as 'one of the world's foremost Peak Oil (oil depletion) educators', and
' journalist, educator, editor, lecturer, a Core Faculty member of New College of California where he teaches a program on "Culture, Ecology and Sustainable Community,"'

Of course, that doesn't mean his points are wrong, but it definetely doesn't make them are right, or important.

consider the source: a newspaper.

"World famous scientist" plays better, sounds much more impressive, than "Some dude who knows what he is talking about."
