Hubbert's Peak: The Impending World Oil Shortage
K.S. Deffeyes 2008 Princeton University Press Princeton
Using the methods of geophysicist M. King Hubbert, who predicted the U.S. oil production peak, Deffeyes predicts that world oil production will peak between 2003-2009. This primer on oil exploration and drilling supports his argument for the timing of the oil peak and its inevitable nature as well as provides commentary on switching to alternative fuels.
