In the first installment of this series, I reviewed U.S. and global oil reserves according to the 2012 BP Statistical Review of World Energy. The second installment covered oil production. Today, I want to examine the changes in consumption of coal, oil, and natural gas since 1965 in the three major consuming regions of the world: Asia Pacific, the United States, and European Union countries.
Highlights of this article and topics that will be explored include:
- Explosive consumption growth in all categories from Asia Pacific
- Why the arguments of climate change advocates are misplaced
- Recent declines in coal and oil consumption in the U.S. and EU
- Why natural gas consumption is increasing in the U.S.
