Today governments, companies, and households alike are full of questions about energy: Are we running out of oil? Will Chinese coal consumption keep rising? What about renewables? And what does it all mean for carbon emissions?
It is these questions that explain why my team and I produce the BP Statistical Review of World Energy year after year. On June 12th we launched the 2013 edition of the Review which, believe it or not, is the 62nd consecutive edition. (Here are links to the original 1952 edition and a commemorative 60th anniversary brochure.)
