Thank YOU for visting our blog.
This is a Swedish blog where we try to connect the dots between energy use and the economic development and resulting effects on our planet and local environment.
The blog will be updated during the year so please come back for a visit!
We recommed our English visitors to check out our youtube channel where we will upload videos on subjects related to economics, energy and sustainabiliy.
We are also authors of the recently published book "Olja för blåbär - Energi, makt och hållbarhet" (Oil for bluberries- Energy, power and Sustainability") .The book is not yet translated but an English book review can be found here.

Who we are:
My dedication and involvement in environmental issues goes several years back. For example I have been involved in environmental protection projects in the Stockholm area with The Swedish Society of Nature and Conservation (SSNC).
I got involved in the Peak Oil issue about 3 years ago. For example I have attended the Energy and Oil conference in Washington DC in 2010 as well as in 2011, a conference organized by the Association for the Study of Peak Oil and Gas (ASPO) -USA.
During my internship at the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) in 2010, I was involved in a project on climate policy´s and technology development. The purpose with the SEI-project was to examine the latest technologies with the ability to decrease carbon emissions, in particular solar power technologies.
I have a Master´s Degree in Peace and Conflict Studies from the Department of the Peace and Conflict Research and an undergraduate in Political Science from the Department of Political Science, at Uppsala University, Sweden. Late 2011, Energy Bulletin published an article I wrote based on my master´s thesis:
- When oil disruptions lead to crises-United States foreign oil dependence and energy vulnerability learning from the Arab Oil Embargos 1967 and 1973/74
Since Juli 2013-July 2015 I was an editor for the Swedish news magazine Om Omställning ("About Transition"), where I wrote about issues related to sustainability such as Peak Oil, energy and economics.
I am the main author of book "Olja för blåbär- Energi, makt och hållbarhet".
I would probably describe myself as a `finance junkie´. At an early age in the middle of the 90s I bought my first stocks and ever since I have been very interested in the financial markets.
My interest in commodities has like many other´s increased with the strong trend and rise in commodity prices that has taken place during the last decade.
The first time I encountered the expression “Peak Oil” was back in 2006 when I read the book by the Swedish author Gunnar Lindstedt “Olja-jakten på det svarta guldet när världens oljekällor sinar” (Oil- The hunt for the black gold when the oil resources in the world depletes).
Yet it wasn´t until the summer of 2008 when the Brent crude peaked at 147 dollars/barrel that I realized that the “emperor is naked” so to speak. The age of cheap and easily accessible oil has started to step back.
I´m coauthor of the book "Olja för blåbär- Energi, makt och hållbarhet" and study Economics at the Uppsala University.
