Ten Countries That Dominate Fossil Fuel Production

Production

Despite the rapid growth of renewable energy over the past decade, fossil fuels still dominate global energy consumption. According to BP’s recently-released Statistical Review of World Energy 2019, fossil fuels represented 84.7% of global energy consumption in 2018.

A few weeks ago I received a press kit on this topic. I usually receive several of these each week, most of which aren’t of enough relevance to share with readers. This one, I felt, was.

A company called 911 Metallurgist pulled together data from more than a dozen sources to created animated maps showing which countries currently produce the most oil, coal, and natural gas.

The graphics are consistent with my recent Review series, but they go into more detail by showing the Top 10 in each category, as well as for overall fossil fuel production. By expanding the rankings, some surprises were revealed in each category. (All graphics are used with permission).

 

The U.S. was the world’s leading oil producer, which is consistent with my recent article detailing the Review’s findings on global oil production and consumption. The biggest surprise for some might be that China is one of the world’s Top 5 oil producers, ahead of all Middle Eastern countries except for Saudi Arabia.

It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise, given its top spot in both oil and natural gas production, that the U.S. took the top spot overall. Russia in second place was also not a surprise, but Iran in third place will be a surprise to many.

It might also be a surprise that more Middle Eastern countries weren’t on the Top 10 list, but that countries like Canada, China, Norway, and Australia were all in the Top 10. Norway is perhaps the biggest surprise, because they only made the Top 10 in one category, coming in at No. 7 in natural gas production.

    US was leading coal producer until the early 90s. It is currently down slightly from peak of early 2000s but has been close to flat, plateaued since 1980 (or even longer view since 1920). China has overtaken the US by growing like a rocket, not by US falling. Is now doing 4 times as much as the US.

    It should be said coal’s biggest ‘enemy’ is another fossil fuel, natural gas.
    America’s shale experience will sell off the last of America’s crude oil at a loss, inevitably crashing loan markets.

    Natural gas, a bi-product of all that high powered fracking produced more N gas than the US can consume, crashing prices.

    The situation will reverse next year as investors
    shy away from losses in crude as more electrical generation avoids coal and turns to NG, wind and solar, on long term contracts.

    This investor turned to pipelines a year ago and never regretted doing so.

    “America, The Incredible Disappearing Country”

    Americans celebrating Independence Day last week did so amidst levels of domestic discord unprecedented in their lifetimes. With the media establishment openly scoffing not merely at the “founding fathers,” who could stand to be removed from their pedestals once in a while, but at the Declaration of Independence itself and even at the notion of declaring that independence, Americans who never thought of themselves as patriots were nevertheless placed on the defensive. One need not believe in “my country right or wrong” to bristle at the idea that said country shouldn’t exist. But would-be defenders of the American Way are finding themselves increasingly at a loss for words. What does America actually stand for now that the “freedoms” once guaranteed its citizens are rapidly fading into the rearview mirror?”

    https://www.globalresearch.ca/incredible-disappearing-country/5683579

    “What’s the government to do when there’s no “America” left to sell? How do you define yourself when you’ve sold your ideals, your heavy industry, your technological advancements, your land, and even your citizens? The American dream has always somewhat resembled a fairytale, and that has been part of its persistent attraction. People fleeing war-torn countries or economic wastelands believed they would live happily ever after if they just made it to the United States. But there was once something, however flawed, to back up the fantasy. Now, Americans celebrating their country’s independence are hard-pressed to find any traces of it left. No wonder we’re setting off more fireworks than ever — nothing banishes an existential crisis like a big explosion.” Nuff said!

    Today’s (crude) drama centers around a missing
    tanker. No word on if Panama will do a first strike on Iran.

    A small oil tanker that has apparently gone missing in the Persian Gulf isn’t owned or operated by the United Arab Emirates and hasn’t sent out a distress call, a U.A.E official said.

    The Panamanian-flagged Riah, which entered Iranian waters and stopped transmitting its location, also “does not carry Emirati personnel,” said Salem AlZaabi, director of the International Security Cooperation Department at the U.A.E.’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The U.A.E is monitoring the situation with international partners, he added.

    The vessel was passing through the Strait of Hormuz, a shipping chokepoint at the mouth of the Gulf, before it went silent more than two days ago in unexplained circumstances, according to the Associated Press. The news agency said the U.S. “has suspicions” that Iran took control of the tanker, citing an unidentified defense official.

    The disappearance was first reported by CNN’s Barbara Starr, who said U.S. intelligence increasingly believed the tanker had been forced into Iranian waters by the Revolutionary Guard but that some Gulf sources suggested the ship simply broke down and was towed by Iran.

    If the Riah has been seized, it would seem an unusual target for Iran. The vessel is 30 years old and tiny. Its capacity is 2,000 dead weight tons, according to the MarineTraffic website. That is only a fraction of the nearly 160,000-ton capacity of the British Heritage, the U.K. oil tanker harassed by Iranian ships last week while exiting the Persian Gulf.

    I am spending less time on this lame unmoderated forum to concentrate on my own blog. I do want to thank all those who have attacked me with giving me material for growth. I have saved the best of my comments for my new blog. I have years worth of material. I have enjoyed moderating the worst of you and neutering your selfish useless agendas. I will still be here it is just I will be spending more time putting out a blog. I don’t expect much of a following with my blog. This is more a personal effort to assemble what I have learned over the last 10 years of formulating my REAL Green Deep Adaptation. Many of my ideas and lifestyles are not mine. I barrow what ever works. I do not claim anything either. It is an open source effort. Anyone can take what I am offering and use it however you want. Take my title if you like. For the stalkers here I hope you find my blog and visit the comment forum. It will be only lightly moderated to prevent juanpee identity theft and excessive cloggo spamming. LOL. There will be a prize for juanpee and annoymouse if you can stalk my blog. Double LOL. Anyway fuck my enemies and many thanks to those who contributed to my metamorphous.

    I guess I could have joined the moderated section at PO dot com, but I knew I’d get my ass permanently banned. I’ll try not to let the door smack me up the backside on the way out.

    Goodbye to ALL of you dumbasses.

    “Trump’s nativism is ironic since he is second-generation himself (his mother was from Scotland) and so are his children (their mothers are from the Czech Republic and Slovenia, respectively). But he is actually playing the race card, as is common among plutocrats, in order to avoid playing the class card. But that is his real card.

  35. CloggieKike/Trump Connection on Thu, 18th Jul 2019 1:06 am 

    Cloggie,

    Shut-up with your sick and perverted defense of Trump as a “virile bull” whose OK by you cause “he didn’t stick his tool into a toddler.”

    Now it make sense your love affair with Trump. You’re both two sick old men who suffer from erectile dysfunction thus the need to always overcompensate.

    What explains the cult-like reverence of Trump ditto-heads and most members of the Republican party for Dear Leader Trump? Researchers from Columbia and New York University examined voting patterns by geographic area with internet search term frequency. The study results pointed to a strong positive correlation between support for Trump and particular internet search topics. The results were shocking, although logical.

    Fragile (Toxic) Masculinity Syndrome.

    The following internet search terms had the strongest positive correlation with support for Trump:

    • “How to get girls”;
    • “Penis enlargement”;
    • “Penis size”;
    • “Erectile Dysfunction”;
    • “Hair Loss”;
    • “Steroids”;
    • “Testosterone”;
    • “Viagra”.

    Trump ditto-heads lack the traits they perceive define masculinity. Therefore, they are innately attracted to a leader who projects these characteristics.

    Examples of Trump’s alpha masculinity as perceived by Trump ditto-heads:

    • Trump uses a whig because he’s too proud to admit he’s bald.
    • Trump’s bullying behavior is viewed by his supporters to be the behavior of a manly man.
    • Frequent golfer.
    • He eats McDonald’s almost every day.
    • He’s a billionaire with a hot wife who married him for his money.

    Dominate?

    Which countries dominate racism (Symbolic Racism: A Look At The Science – 13)?

    Domination is a whiff of suicidal.

  43. claes on Thu, 18th Jul 2019 8:04 pm 

    Dredd,a lot of countries are dominated by racism, but a few allow immigrants to enter their countries and give them a chance for a better living.
    Let’s take a look at who are not open to other cultures:
    1: China hates and suppresses all cultures within their empire that doesn’t fit into the Chinese Communistic Party’s idea of how human beings should live.
    2: Arab countries are in general hostile to non-muslim culture.
    3: Jews don’t want muslims in their country, if they can avoid it.
    4: Somalies are very keen on keeping foreigners out of their “country”.
    5: South Africa is starting to expel whites.
    6: Actually, most populations around the world want to keep other “tribes” out of their own territory.

    The only exceptions to these rules, are the countries dominated by white christians. These countries have welcomed huge amounts of immigrants into their lands, giving the newcomers lots of economical benefits and legal rights.
    But all of this is about to change because the immigrants generaly feel they doesn’t fit into western culture. The immigrants say it’s because of the whites dominance, while the original population says it’s because of the immigrants lack of adabtability to local culture.
    Whatever it is, the result is distrust and conflict.
    A lot of white people feel that multiculture is a dead-end street, and that the only way forward is to let each culture run its own course, for better or worse, preferable in their own lands of origin.
