Deffeyes, Kenneth S.

SUMMARY

"This book explains both why the decline of our most precious fuel is inevitable and how challenging it will be to cope with what comes next."Richard E. Smalley, University Professor, Rice University, and 1996 Nobel laureate With world oil production about to peak and inexorably head toward steep decline, what fuels are available to meet rising global energy demands? That question, once thought to address a fairly remote contingency, has become ever more urgent, as a spate of books has drawn increased public attention to the imminent exhaustion of the economically vital world oil reserves. Kenneth S. Deffeyes, a geologist who was among the first to warn of the coming oil crisis, now takes the next logical step and turns his attention to the earth's supply of potential replacement fuels. In Beyond Oil, he traces out their likely production futures, with special reference to that of oil, utilizing the same analytic tools developed by his former colleague, the pioneering petroleum-supply authority M. King Hubbert. "The bad news in this book is made bearable by the author's witty, conversational writing style. If my college econ textbooks had been written this way, I might have learned economics." Rupert Cutler, The Roanoke TimesDeffeyes, Kenneth S. is the author of 'Beyond Oil The View from Hubbert's Peak', published 2006 under ISBN 9780809029570 and ISBN 080902957X.
