A Thousand Barrels A Second

The Coming Oil Break Point and the Challenges Facing An Energy Dependent World

Rate this:
The coming oil "break point" is the next 5 to 10 years, during which rising oil prices and market volatility will force structural changes in how we extract and expend energy. Both a chronicle of previous break points and their consequences - including the shifts from whale oil to kerosene lighting, coal- to oil-fuelled navies, and steam to electric engines - and a carefully considered economic analysis of our present conundrum, this book offers no magic-bullet solution to the increasingly uncomfortable primacy of petroleum as the world's fuel of choice.
