Conventional wisdom assumes a future with plentiful oil to satisfy the world’s ever growing economies and higher living standards. However, all finite sources simply have limits to their growth and a global production peak is now imminent, followed by an irreversible decline. It is a problem that may soon eclipse global warming and deserves urgent attention by industry leaders and politicians if risks are to be fully understood and mitigation begun on a timely basis, argues Alex Kuhlman.
