  •  PFC Energy International, not a good source (0+ / 0-)

    This chart is crazy!  It sure doesn't represent U.S. oil production or international production.  What in the world is it supposed to represent?!

    •  Why is it not a good source? (0+ / 0-)

      The NIC saw fit to put it in their report.

      It's quite simple. It represents projected global demand vs time and estimates the likely energy sources for the time period until 2030.

      According to this projection the largest energy sources will still be coal, oil and gas.

        If this is global demand, it's simply wrong! it's off by a factor of 10.  There's no decline in the last recessions, even the growth between 2000 and 2010 is wrong.

        I'm sorry, I've been watching oil production and consumption since the crises of the 70's and I don't know what this chart represents, but it sure isn't oil.

        Coal Use to Double - 5/1/10, p. D3. home delivery version

        Karnataka Power, the company that supplies power to Google, Dell and Microsoft in Bangalore, plans to more than double its coal fired generation capacity by 2012, from 2000 megawatts now to 4,700. It also plans to increase gas-fired capacity.

        could not find a link to this, either in the Chron or another source...

        sounds like our "clean" computer networks require a lot of energy, too.
