- Former Deputy Exploration Manager at Total Oil Company
- Pro to the question "Can Alternative Energy Effectively Replace Fossil Fuels?"
“For the question ‘can alternative energy effectively replace fossil fuels’ [the] answer [is] yes but not in sufficient quantity… We need every energy but first we need to save energy and to change our way of life (based on consumption and not well-being). Constant growth is impossible in a limited world and all BAU [business as usual] scenarios are wishful thinking.”
