Live Chat: Peak Oil—Is the Well Running Dry?
1 February 2012 4:34 pm
How long before the world starts running short of oil? Have we hit the peak of oil production already, or do we have until mid-century? This week on ScienceLive, we’ll chat with two experts on oil as a critical energy source. They’ll answer your questions on a variety of pressing questions, including whether hot new technology can boost world production, how the United States might reduce its dependence on foreign oil, and the biggie, how much breathing room we have before the inevitable peak.
Join Mark Finley, the General Manager of Global Energy Markets and US Economics at BP, and Davie Greene, a Corporate Fellow at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and a Senior Fellow of the Howard H. Baker, Jr. Center for Public Policy at the University of Tennessee as they tackle these questions and take yours, live at 3 p.m. EST Thursday.
You can submit your questions on the chat page before the chat starts or at any time during the live Q&A.
