This very article deals not only with the aspects in relation to oil preservation, policies taken up by the concerned government but also about how the various models of society dealt in with regards to oil preservation and how this problem now has taken a u-turn and how its gravity is increasing with every single hour and it's a general fact that complete loss of oil column is generally observed where the crest of the trap is bound by a typically large fault with high post rift displacements. The use of mineral oil for the preservation of species of Pseudomonas is described and a linkage has been drawn with the Energies of the G-8. The G-8's major and decisive role would be in locating on a priority basis other renewable energy sources that will reduce the fuel consumed by all sectors worldwide.
The developing countries can play a vital role by reducing their dependence on crude oil. Both the developing and the developed countries should encourage the use of non-conventional sources of energy, in all areas. More research and development is also required to make industry less dependent on petroleum products and to develop organic alternatives. A large part of this article deals with the aspects of "What we can do and how", focusing on the aspects of sustainable development and its use and also emphasis has been given to other aspects as to role of media, views of antagonists and protagonists and the author had tried to include the data also with regards to fall in production and rapid increase in consumption and also some ways are suggested to overcome this effect and various studies are also incorporated as economic worries, particularly about a slowdown in the United States, the world's largest oil consumer, is one reason the cartel may have agreed [can use as a cover excuse for holding] to hold output steady and also the result of US's consumption of oil has also been included. Much of the emphasis has also been laid down on OIL PEAK concept.
A comprehensive over view has been taken and the author had tried to cover all the important aspects felt to be relevant and had pointed out to a situation which will arise when there will still be plenty of oil flowing in 2020; it just won't be anywhere near enough to satisfy world demand, and as such will be too expensive for many of us to continue to use in the same amounts that we do today. The time to start preparing for a low-energy economy is now.
