Which Train Is Leaving The Station?

by David Cohen

“Time is running out, and the train is leaving the station,” Chu said in a speech at CERAWeek, a premier industry conference hosted by IHS Cambridge Energy Research Associates.

…I can think of other trains that have left the station, or soon will. (Not counting the “get a clue” train, of course!)

  • the cheap oil train left the station sometime in 2005
  • the U.S. domestic oil production train left the station in 1970
  • the global “peak oil” production train will leave the station in 2012, ±4 years
  • the climate mitigation train left the station sometime around 2005, ±5 years
