About this event

An increasing number of experts agree that there is great uncertainty about oil supply beyond 2015 and growing evidence of a Supply Crunch appearing, perhaps as soon as in the next 2 years. 

However, many experts also believe that after a supply-demand gap, there will be a peak in production, Peak Oil, followed by decline. Peak Oil does not mean running out of oil; in fact oil will likely be available for much longer than the often-quoted 40 years Reserves-to-Production timescale. The key is that like many other examples in resources, production will peak and for a whole variety of reasons. 

This presentation seeks to explain why we find it difficult to discuss Peak Oil. As well as suggesting some scenarios, it concludes that we have not grasped the urgency of replacing fossil fuels and how the future of energy supplies is deeply interwoven with the financial system and its expectations of growth.
