How long will it be before another energy source will replace oil and gas? “When?” is one of those very important questions for which the best answer has long been, and remains, a guess.  But an article in the Wall Street Journal may provide useful input. No doubt, this “when” is discussed in Big Oil board rooms.   Recently, the Journal asked several major oil companies when the demand for oil might peak. Respondents suggested demand would continue to increase for several decades and then begin to decline.  Their specific answer depended on which oil company was responding, but the average was something like thirty-five years. When the decline will begin will probably be linked to when we have an affordable, much cleaner, probably renewable, and convenient source of energy available. How does their estimate fit in with your institution’s environmental planning?
