World Sets Record For Fossil Fuel Consumption


Robert Rapier , CONTRIBUTOR

Robert Rapier is a chemical engineer in the energy industry. Robert has 25 years of international engineering experience in the chemicals, oil and gas, and renewable energy industries, and holds several patents related to his work. He has worked in the areas of oil refining, oil production, synthetic fuels, biomass to energy, and alcohol production, and currently serves as Director of Engineering for Arizona-based ZHRO Power. He is author of The Energy Strategist at Investing Daily, and of the book Power Plays: Energy Options in the Age of Peak Oil. Robert has appeared on 60 Minutes, The History Channel, CNBC, Business News Network, CBC, and PBS, and his energy-themed articles have appeared in numerous media outlets, including the Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Christian Science Monitor, and The Economist.

SNIPPET:

While global coal consumption did decline by 1% in 2015, the world set new consumption records for petroleum and natural gas. The net impact was a total increase in the world's fossil fuel consumption of about 0.6%. That may not seem like much, but the net increase in fossil fuel consumption -- the equivalent of 127 million metric tons of petroleum -- was 2.6 times the overall increase in the consumption of renewables (48 million metric tons of oil equivalent).

As a result, despite the record increase in renewable consumption, global carbon dioxide emissions once again set a new all-time record high. Carbon dioxide emissions in 2015 were 36 million metric tons higher than in 2014, and marked the 6th straight year a new record high has been set. But perhaps the silver lining is that 2015 marked the 2nd straight year that the increase was smaller than the year before. Carbon dioxide emissions in 2013 were 505 million tons higher than in 2012, but then 2014 and 2015 respectively saw increases of 224 million metric tons and 36 million metric tons.


The primary reason for the slowdown in the growth of carbon dioxide emissions was the reduction in global coal consumption, but this was offset by a nearly 2 million barrel per day (bpd) increase in global oil consumption. Notably, oil consumption in the U.S. rose for the 3rd straight year, and is now at the highest levels since 2008. U.S. crude oil consumption is now back to within 6% of the all-time high consumption level set in 2005.

Global crude oil production increased by 2.8 million bpd in 2015, led by a 1 million bpd increase in U.S. production. The bulk of the rest of the world's oil production increase came from OPEC, which cumulatively boosted production by 1.6 million bpd over 2015. BP's definition of crude oil "includes crude oil, shale oil, oil sands and NGLs (natural gas liquids - the liquid content of natural gas where this is recovered separately)." Per this definition, the U.S. was the world's top crude oil producer with 12.7 million bpd of oil production in 2015 (the highest production number ever recorded for the U.S.). Saudi Arabia was in 2nd place at 12.0 million bpd.

Agelbert NOTE: Palloy has problems with reality. He likes to post umpteen charts that back up absolutely nothing at all in regard to his claims about 'peak oil' and the 'coming collapse' that will 'save us' from Catastrophic Climate Change.

MORE fossil fuels are being consumed, not less, as the article linked evidences.

Palloy, DO NOT post any more crap from the EIA or the IEA or any other energy stat outfit. I will delete them gratuitously. WHY?

Because, the MAIN issue here is that there is a FUNDAMENTAL METHODOLOGICAL FLAW in the IPCC GHG math (i.e. LOW BALLING of radiative forcing) for ALL the scenarios. Until you agree that said flaw exists, you have NOTHING to contribute here in regard to IPCC math and world fossil fuel consumptiom. Have a nice day.
Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
