If you don´t deal with reality, reality will deal with you"
"Wenn Sie sich nicht mit der Realität befassen, wird die Realität sich mit Ihnen befassen"
"Geophysicist M. King Hubbert (Hubbert's Peak) :
Our ignorance is not so vast as our failure to use what we know."
"Unsere Unwissenheit ist nicht so groß wie unser Unvermögen, zu verwenden, was wir wissen."

He claims the consequences of this are uncertain but drastic, due to the world's dependency on fossil fuels for the vast majority of its energy. His theories have received wide attention but are disputed and have not significantly changed governmental energy policies at this time. To deal with declining global oil production, he has proposed the "Rimini protocol".
Influential papers by Campbell include The Coming Oil Crisis, written with Jean Laherrère in 1998 and credited with convincing the International Energy Agency of the coming peak; and The End of Cheap Oil, published the same year in Scientific American. He was referred to as a "doomsayer" in The Wall Street Journal in 2004.
"There is, I think, a strong danger of some ill-considered military intervention to try to secure oil. A stock market crash seems inevitable, as some investment managers are now telling us. The global market may collapse because of high transport costs and global recession. Self-sufficiency will become a priority."

He worked at the Shell research lab in Houston, Texas. He made several important contributions to geology, geophysics, and petroleum geology, most notably the Hubbert curve and Hubbert peak theory (a basic component of peak oil), with important political ramifications.
