"Rapier's career has been devoted to energy issues. He has worked on cellulosic ethanol, butanol production, oil refining, natural gas production, and gas-to-liquids (GTL). Mr. Rapier grew up in Oklahoma, and received his Master's in Chemical Engineering from Texas A&M University. He is presently the Chief Technology Officer for Merica International, a renewable energy company. His company is involved in a wide variety of projects, with a core focus on the localized use of biomass to energy for the benefit of local populations." -- http://www.financialsense.com/contrib...

Note: Rapier adds that "low natural gas prices are mitigating the impact of high oil prices, which is the reason the economy isn't getting harder hit".

This interview was filmed by Aaron Wissner, founder and executive director of Local Future nonprofit, during the 2011 ASPO-USA conference in Washington, DC.
