"Are we running out of oil or do we have plenty of this resource? Will
the oil age end before we run out of oil? Have we reached the maximum
daily production rate of oil or are we already on the down slide?
Professor Gorelick has compiled the necessary data and provided his own
incisive analysis to assist the reader in understanding the complex
issues related to the supply and demand hydrocarbons. A must read for an understanding of both the domestic and global energy picture."
Professor Khalid Aziz, Department of Energy Resources Engineering at Stanford

interested in energy and the environment."
Ashok Belani, Chief Technology Officer of Schlumberger Limited
