Dr. Kenneth S. Deffeyes is a petroleum geologist.

"The dean of the older Hubbertians is Kenneth Deffeyes, Professor Emeritus at Princeton and author of Hubbert's Peak: the Impending World Oil Shortage (2001). Deffeyes, who worked with Hubbert in Houston for Shell Oil, says 'I never came to identify with management.' Convinced of Hubbert's theory, 'I realized that a contracting oil industry was not a good career prospect,' he says, 'so I decided to get out and go into academia' (Buterl, 2002). Besides, he thinks that 'crude oil is much too valuable to be burned as a fuel.' (Dunn, 2002)." [1]
