I did the research; Now you help me get the word out (BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE!!!)

The World’s Largest Oil Reserves By Country

Proven oil reserves are those that have a reasonable certainty of being recoverable under existing economic and political conditions, with existing technology.

10. United States - 39,230 million barrels
9. Libya - 48,363 million barrels
8. Russia - 80,000 million barrels
7. United Arab Emirates - 97,800 million barrels
6. Kuwait - 101,500 million barrels
5. Iraq - 142,503 million barrels
4. Iran - 158,400 million barrels
3. Canada - 169,709 million barrels
2. Saudi Arabia - 266,455 million barrels
1. Venezuela - 300,878 million barrels
The World’s Largest Oil Reserves By Country

the above adds up to---- 1,304,838 million barrels

The total worldwide oil consumption was 93 million barrels per day (bbl/day) on average in 2015 according to the International Energy Agency (IEA).

List of countries by oil consumption - Wikipedia

93 million a day X 356 days = 33,945 a year

1304838/33945 = 38 years

I couldn’t care less.

I’ll be dead in 38 years, so it doesn’t affect me.

Maybe we should start throwing leftists into the tar pits to replenish the supply.

We reached peak oil some time ago.

Are you being sarcastic? Given the fact that oil reserves have generally been moving up for the last half century, I’m not too concerned. Every peak oil prediction ever has been wrong.

Those figures are known reserves. Every year, oil companies are finding new oil. The exploration for oil is a huge business. Although I agree with your objective, we need to move away from oil as a fuel, using known reserves is not a convincing argument.

Personally, I think a better argument is the effects of climate change that people can see today, increasing precipitation in the Midwest and increasing droughts in southwest, increasing forest fires in the west, increases in intensity, number and duration of hurricanes, 8 inch rise in sea level leave since 1880, etc.. Most people don't give shit what happens to the planet a hundred years or so from now. They are living for here and now. What do they care if there is no arctic ice in 2100, crops are failing, and there's is widespread famine. That's not going to be their problem.

We were supposed to have run out like 40 years ago or something...


Depleting Oil Reserves
We have been hearing this one for more than a century now! Earlier it was the U.S. Bureau of Mines that predicted that oil reserves will be depleted in 10 years, and this prediction has been backed repeatedly over the years. In 1951, the Department of Interior predicted that the US will run out of oil reserves in the coming 13 years! The reality is that with scientific advancements, new deposits are being explored, and alternate energy sources are being utilized.

Just another fun one, since it has recently resurfaced-
Mass Extinction
At the first Earth Day, its political sponsor, Senator Gaylord Nelson, warned: “Dr. S. Dillon Ripley, secretary of the Smithsonian Institute, believes that in 25 years, somewhere between 75 and 80 percent of all the species of living animals will be extinct.”

To put that in perspective, a 75% to 80% mass extinction is on the level of the cataclysm that killed the dinosaurs 66 million years ago—caused by the “environmental” catastrophe of a six-mile-wide meteor crashing into the Earth and cloaking it in an enormous cloud of ash and dust. Obviously, nothing remotely like that happened between 1970 and 1995.

The Permian Basin in New Mexico has 46.3 BILLION barrels of oil.

That's only one recent find in the US

Twenty years ago we supposedly had 20 years of oil, today we supposedly have 20 years and in 20 years we'll supposedly have 20 more....on and on
