I- EPE 2010 How to solve the energy crisis Kris De Decker (edited by Vincent Grosjean) Don’t get me wrong: all efforts to build and develop renewable energy and energy efficient technology are useful and very necessary. My point is that, by themselves, they will not yield any results. To make them work, we need to put an absolute limit to energy use. The main purpose of the article is to (A) criticize countries that do not invest in renewable energy production. (B) alert the world to the excessive energy consumption in Asian countries. (C) suggest that the solution to the energy crisis should include a decrease in demand. (D) convince the reader that societies should stop developing new products to save more energy. (E) announce a drastic measure to eliminate the emission of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

II- PETROBRAS 2010 PEAK OIL FOR DUMMIES by Tom Rogue - August 09, 2009 Over the past decade, a fierce debate has emerged amongst energy experts about whether global oil production was about to reach a peak, followed by an irreversible decline.

(B) complain against the complex methodology used to calculate the volume of remaining world oil reserves. (C) warn about issues concerning the evaluation of future oil reserves and the possibility of shortages. (D) denounce the OPEC countries for extracting more oil than needed for their consumption. (E) minimize the relevance of the threat of a crisis in the oil industry caused by devastated reserves.

(C) defend the position that no costly investment should be made in the new Tupi reserves. but technological and financial hurdles will have to be overcome first.PETROBRAS 2010 Deepwater Oil Finds Spur NYK to Invest in New Vessels by Mari Iwata A raft of giant oil strikes in global deepwaters is prompting Japanese shipping company NIPPON YUSEN KABUSHIKI KAISHA (NYK Line) to invest more in floating production vessels that it can offer for lease.

IV. (C) assure that by 2030 a relevant number of plants will be able to use clean coal. V. (E) suggest that coal burning is definitely the best idea to eliminate sulfur dioxide from the environment. This has put Brazil well on its way to becoming a major producer in the future.

(D) expose NYK’s plans for floating vessels that could be leased to Petrobras’s subsalt oil drilling. NYK Line says Petroleo Brasileiro SA (PBR) will be its biggest customer in the near term. (C) complain about Petrobras’s ambitious drilling plans derived from its recent deepwater discoveries. Governments and the coal industry are trying to bite off too much at once. more widely known as clean coal technology. 2009 Here’s a bit of unalloyed pessimism for you: Carbon capture and sequestration (CCS).

Weak prospects for a significant pickup in the medium term have raised questions about whether investors will see the project as financially viable.PETROBRAS 2010 Fossil Fuels The twentieth century has been called the hydrocarbon century due to the abundance of fossil fuels.
