Beyond Oil: The View from Hubbert’s Peak
Description: Geologist, author, and Princeton University professor Kenneth Deffeyes writes that world oil production is no longer increasing in his new book, “Beyond Oil: The View From Hubbert’s Peak.” The title of the book comes from petroleum geologist M. King Hubbert, who formulated that the world’s oil production would reach its peak in 2000 and begin to decline rapidly until the global fossil fuel supplies went dry. Mr. Deffeyes believes that the world’s oil production would peak at the close of 2005 and that the eventual absence of fossil fuels would have a devastating and potentially catastrophic effect on world economies. The book also lists the potential replacement fossil fuel energy sources and the ways in which they can be utilized effectively.
Author Bio: Kenneth Deffeyes is a geologist and professor emeritus at Princeton University. He is also the author of “Hubbert’s Peak: The Impending World Oil Shortage.”
