After reaching the highest possible levels of oil production, known as peak oil, experts say a combination of geological, technological and economic factors will cause the production rate to slow. According to some experts, technological innovations mean peak oil won’t become a reality anytime soon. But other experts say we are already past the peak — and the issue of slowing oil production is a problem we can’t innovate our way out of.
Environmental policy decisions based on flawed coal and oil production estimates could lead to expensive solutions for controlling CO2 emissions.
