“A total of 2,943 Mtoe, (Million tons of oil equivalent) of oil was consumed in the year 2000. An estimated 1696 Mtoe (57.6%) was consumed in the transport sector”

(2) - Colin J. Campbell, Ph.D., (born in Berlin, Germany in 1931) is a retired British petroleum geologist who predicts that oil production will peak by 2007, Campbell has over 40 years of experience in the oil industry. More recently, he founded the Association for the Study of Peak Oil and Gas, he is affiliated with Petroconsultants in Geneva and is a trustee of the Oil Depletion Analysis Centre in London. He conducts research on oil peak, and he also tries to build public awareness of the issue, which includes lecturing extensively..

(3) - By Colin Campbells figures we have used 900 Billion Barrels (Gb) of oil, there are known reserves of 900 Gb and there are 200 Gb left to discover so the numbers speak for themselves. Today the world uses 30 Gb of oil every year, 24 billion barrels of conventional oil, with the remaining 6 billion coming from heavy oil and tar sands, deep water oil fields, and natural gas liquids (there are 42 US gallons in a barrel, or 159 litres). Oil stocks are declining at the rate of 2.2% per annum. At current levels of extraction we would run out of conventional oil in 35 years. The demand for oil is growing every year as emerging economies adopt our oil driven lifestyle. reports in wikapedia suggest that not all the oil can be extracted so some will have to stay in the ground.

Peak oil is also the point of maximum output, after a short plateau period the total output of conventional oil will go into steady decline, demand will not be met and prices will escalate.
Declining output reduces extraction rates and therefore extends the life of the well, Carbon and water can be pumped into the wells to try and maintain output rates, as oil prices rise this becomes more economic, however maintaining extraction rates will shorten the ultimate life of the field and this method may reduce the total recoverable figure.

“In 2006, the average US vehicle tips the scales at a scarcely credible 4142 lbs. (1.87 metric ton)”

This gives a 20:1 ratio with a driver weighing 207 lb, or 20:1 ratio at 138 Lb per person if you use an average occupancy of one and a half people.

“Oil contains an enormous amount of energy. A very small tea-cup of oil, 100 ml, contains energy equal to one kilo-watt-hour, 1 KWh, and what can you do with one kilo-watt-hour? If you place a small car, 1.200 kilo, at the base of the Eiffel Tower and tie a rope to the car, and then take the elevator to the top of the tower, 321 meter. By hand you then pull the car to the top of the tower, and when you have done this you have done a work equal to one kilo-watt-hour.”“Driving a SUV one mile uses the same energy as pulling a SUV to the top of the Eiffel Tower.”

"We have serious environmental resource problems of water, land and energy, and these are now coming to bear on food production, malnutrition and the incidence of diseases," said Pimentel. Of the world population of about 6.5 billion, 57 percent is malnourished, compared with 20 percent of a world population of 2.5 billion in 1950, said Pimentel.“
