Table 1-1 shows how population and energy consumption per capita have increased through the ages. Continue this trend out a hundred years, and it suggests that the only thing humans will be doing a century from now is consuming energy, 24/7.

This growth can’t be supported, unless society comes up with alternative sources and consumption habits; otherwise, fossil fuel reserves will be depleted by the year 2050.
S. S. 9 million barrels a day. S. 3 billion barrels. But current production rates are around 8 percent of the reserves per year. S. S. 5 trillion cubic feet.
