In 2012, the US Geological Survey estimated that the world's ultimately recoverable resources of crude oil and natural gas liquids were more than 3.8 trillion barrels.
"Peak oil" theorists have cautioned--erroneously--for decades that world oil reserves are dwindling, but due to improved technology and the rise in oil prices, reserves that once were too difficult or costly to tap have become profitable and, as such, the world's ultimately recoverable resources actually have grown over time, the authors maintain.
