There was a lot going on at the 100th anniversary Annual Convention and Exhibition (ACE) in Houston earlier this year, but one of the stand-out events was a forum by AAPG’s Division of Environmental Geosciences and the Energy Minerals Division: “The Next 100 Years of Global Energy Use: Resources, Impacts and Economics.”

The forum was to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of AAPG and to address the future challenges of the oil and gas industry to supply the world’s increasing energy needs without compromising global environmental concerns with continued use of fossil fuels.

And, it was packed, since it featured half a dozen rock stars and luminaries from the energy industry and academia.

The panel included the following presentations:

  • Part 1: Energy Security and Energy Poverty, by Scott W. Tinker, director of the Bureau of Economic Geology, past AAPG president and founder of the Switch Energy Project
  • Part 2: Global Population, Energy Demand, and Future Technology, by Steven E. Koonin, professor of Information and director of the NYU Center for Urban Science and Progress
  • Part 3 Outlook: 2120 — Global Petroleum Resources and Transportation Fuel Options, by Cindy Yeilding, senior vice president of BP America
  • Part 4: The Global Power Fuel Mix and Carbon Transition, by Mark A. Snell, president of Sempra Energy
  • Part 5: Density, Key to Fake and True News about Energy and Environment, by Jesse H. Ausubel, director of the Program for the Human Environment and senior research associate at Rockefeller University
  • Part 6: The Grand Energy Challenge: Energy Diversity and Economic Realities, by Kenneth B. Medlock III, senior director of the Center for Energy Studies at the Baker Institute for Public Policy of Rice University

It was one of those events that attendees talk about for years to come and people who didn’t attend regret missing for just as long.

Well, there’s good news for both groups: all of the content from those presentations is available online at http://aapg.to/next100sd.
