Interesting profile here of James Smith, outgoing UK boss of oil giant Shell.
I saw him give a fascinating talk during the banking crisis. He's a Nairn mannie, don't you know.
Sadly, life in a tower block office overlooking the Thames seems to have disconnected him from reality.
He thinks cheap gas from shale could be the saviour of peak oil. Shale gas extraction involves 'fracking'. At his Findhorn talk the other night Judge Monbiot explained how flipping awful fracking is. At least something we agreed on!
