Information about Pardee Keynote Symposia

“Pardee Keynote Symposia are special, interdisciplinary events representing the leading edge of a scientific discipline or area of public policy and addressing broad, fundamental issues in the geosciences. Selection is on a competitive basis. This year’s thirteen Pardee Symposia were reviewed and accepted by the Annual Program Committee; all speakers are invited.”

At GSA, the Geologica Society of America, annual meeting in Denver, October 2013, the session no. 160 was chosen as one of the 13 Pardee Keynote Symposia. In total there are 407 sessions. In a few hours’ the following program will be presented at the Colorado Convention Center, Mile High Ballroom with James W. Murray as presiding:

1:00 PM Introductory remarks
1:05 PM Murray, James W.: Oil production, economic growth and climate change
1:30 PM Aleklett, Kjell: Darcy’s law and future flow of crude oil
1:55 PM Berman, Arthur E.: Let’s be honest about Shale Gas
2:20 PM Hughes, J. David: Tight oil: a solution to U.S. import dependence?
2:45 PM Hall, Charles A.S.: are we entering the second half of the age of oil? Some empirical constraints on optimists’ predictions of an oil-rich future
3:10 PM Hansen, Jim: It is more than a simple bell curve
3:35 PM Rutledge, David B.: Projections for ultimate coal production from production histories through 2012
4:00 PM Tans, Pieter: Will realistic fossil fuel burning scenarios prevent catastrophic climate change?
4:25 PM Discussion and Q&A
