Transport Revolutions

Transport Revolutions: Moving People and Freight without OilTransportRevolutionsCover by Richard Gilbert and Anthony Perl sets out challenges to industrialized societies’ growing dependence on transport fuelled by low-priced oil. One challenge is the possible imminence of the peak in world oil production. This would be followed by gradually declining production during a period when world oil consumption is projected to increase substantially. The shortfall between expected demand and supply could result in extremely high oil prices. Another challenge is potentially catastrophic climate change caused at least in part by combustion of oil and other fossil fuels.
