Bryan Lawrence : Oil Supplies

Oil Supplies

Science also 1 has a couple of letters (Grant and Ehrenfeld) on the reality of how much oil is left to exploit.

As I said in January, this is something we should all give a bit of thought to from time to time, not least because these letters give us a timescale, of say, two or three decades, so it's going to effect our retirements!

(I especially liked the quote from Bartlett on the upper limit of this period: assume all the earth is oil, and current growth rates in usage, and it'll all be gone in 342 years!)

1: also as in: this and my previous blog entry demonstrate what I was doing over lunch time (ret).
