My name is Jacob Lund Fisker. I'm 30 years old and I come from Denmark which is a small rainy and windy country in Scandinavia. I lived four years in Switzerland, where I got my Ph.D. in theoretical physics at the University of Basel. Since then I have worked as a research associate at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana, USA.
I became seriously aware of the Hubbert peak in the beginning of 2001. Subsequent to this "discovery" I investigated this subject on the net and read books suggested by others. I became member of ROE/ROE2 and ER around the summer of 2001. I wrote a paper on thermodynamics for The Final Energy Crisis, which was published in the spring of 2005 by Pluto Press.
My experience in trying to convey this information to other people has been disbelief, disinterest, or/and denial. It is a complex subject which many people, despite their lack of understanding of the scale and importance of energy-use to the world they live in, do not want to spend their time on learning. It is also a highly controversial subject which may explain people's reactions. Of course one should remain open to the possibility that new discoveries will make the present conclusions wrong.
