Murder Inc. appears to have claimed another victim. Sorry I’m so late with this.
Shock: Vocal Peak Oil Fact Advocate & BP Critic Matt Simmons Dies (Another High-Profile Peak Oil Supporter Also Died of A Heart Attack Back in 2007)
August 9, 2010
in Peak Oil
Prominent energy investment banker Matthew Simmons, 67, was found dead at his North Haven, Maine home Sunday night. Simmons drowned (?????) in his hot tub after suffering what appears to be a heart attack.
CNBC — in my humble opinion — has mocked Peak Oil Theory and Simmons by putting the words Peak Oil in quotation marks. The words Peak Oil are not suppossed to be inside quotes …the proper term is Peak Oil Theory.‘Peak Oil’ Theory Advocate Matt Simmons Dies. This is how Bloomberg announced Simmons’ passing: Matthew Simmons, Peak-Oil Advocate and Simmons & Co. Founder, Dies at 67 (no quotation around Peak Oil).
Flashback: Peak oil proponent Ali Morteza Samsam Bakhtiari, 61, died in 2007 (Dr. Bakhtiari died suddenly and unexpectedly of a heart attack — Wikipedia)
Dr Bakhtiari suggested that it would require an act of god for the world to avoid warring over depleting energy resources. He also believed that a peak in natural gas would be more shocking than peak oil because natural gas is less fluid and requires pipelines and LNG facilities to export overseas.
Dr. Bakhtiari died suddenly and unexpectedly of a heart attack. His funeral and burial were in Tehran, Iran. He is survived by his children, Amir Bahman and Golbenaz Samsam Bakhtiari.
