A Powerful Analysis of Our Oil Addiction and a New Direction for Global Energy

In 2006, world oil consumption exceeded one thousand barrels per second-a level with enormous impact on the environment, world economies, investments, and business profitability. A Thousand Barrels a Second examines the future of oil and the nature of our energy supply, revealing how governments, businesses, and individuals can meet the coming challenges with better solutions and innovations.

A Thousand Barrels a Second is a book that arrives just in time.”-U.S. Representative Charles F. Bass, (R-NH), member House Energy and Commerce Committee

“Peter Tertzakian's analysis of world oil is a fascinating reminder that history often foretells the major turning points of the future.”-Gwyn Morgan, President & Chief Executive Officer, EnCana Corporation

“An excellent book! In my more than 40 years in the industry I can't think of a publication which has so clearly discussed the global challenges of today's demands and tomorrow's requirements.”-Peter Gaffney, Senior Partner, Gaffney, Cline & Associates

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Petroleum Blues This is a book all North Americans should read. We seem blissfully unaware of the fact that our motor vehicles are using a non-renewable resource which will eventually run out. In fact, this book explains that we will not actually run out of oil. Instead, its price will rise as we need to exploit harder to extract, and more costly petroleum. As the price of petroleum products rises, it becomes profitable and therefore possible to pump oil up from deep under the sea. It becomes possible to explore ever more remote sites - like the northern slope of Alaska. Canadian tar sands were not profitable when the price was $20 per barrel. At $40 and $60, they are real money makers. This book should be required reading for conservative presidents of the U.S.A.. Perhaps somebody will read it to him . . .
