"Oil" Author Will Speak Tonight - CU Boulder, Colorado
The 100-year reign of the world's oil-based economy is nearing its zenith, according to an author who will speak at CU-Boulder tonight.
Paul Roberts, author of "The End of Oil: On the Edge of a Perilous New World," will lecture tonight from 5:30 - 7:00 at Old Main Chapel in a free public lecture.
"We won't run out of oil tomorrow, or next week, but it will happen soon," Roberts said from Los Angeles on Tuesday.
Roberts said worldwide supplies of the world's easily extractable oil could peak and then decline within the next 10 years, but that timeline isn't set in stone.
The U.S. Geological Survey estimates that oil supplies will peak in 2035.
