U.S. oil and gas resurgence expected as global energy demand grows 15.11.2017 SFGate: Business & Technology
LONDON — Oil will continue growing as a source of energy for more than two decades, with the United States set to become the undisputed leader in crude and gas production, the International Energy Agency said Tuesday. The report from the Paris agency will come as grim news for officials attending global climate talks in Bonn, Germany, as they grapple with ways to contain carbon emissions. Scientists just this week said that emissions of the heat-trapping gas rose this year after three years of not growing. The energy agency said that oil production will be driven by continued growth in energy-hungry industries.
