Presentation: Disruptive Energy Futures

As it confronts troubling fundamentals, the oil industry’s most basic challenge is not lowered prices but weakening demand as customers find powerful new ways to save or displace oil. Oil suppliers are more at risk from competition with those new technologies than from climate regulation.
