This study addresses several questions concerning the peaking of conventional oil production from an optimist’s perspective. Is the oil peak imminent? What is the range of uncertainty? What are the key determining factors? Will a transition to unconventional oil undermine or strengthen OPEC’s influence over world oil markets? These issues are explored using(More)
Over the past 25 years more than 20 major studies have examined the technological potential to improve the fuel economy of passenger cars and light trucks in the United States. The majority has used technology/cost analysis, a combination of analytical methods from the disciplines of economics and automotive engineering. In this paper we describe the key(More)
Alternative motor fuels have been advocated in the name of energy security, regional air quality, greenhouse gas emission reduction, and even economic savings. The Energy Policy Act of 1992 sets a goal of replacing 30 percent of conventional fuel use with alternative fuels by the year 2010. Earlier analysis using a single-period equilibrium model(More)
Previous research suggests that the elasticity of light-duty motor vehicle travel with respect to fuel cost, known as the “rebound effect,” is modest in size and probably declined in magnitude between the 1960s and the late 1990s. However, turmoil in energy markets during the early 2000s has raised new questions about the stability of this elasticity. Using(More)
i ACKNOWLEDGMENTS This report is one in a series that documents an analysis of the full social-cost of motor-vehicle use in the United States. The series is entitled The Annualized Social Cost of Motor-Vehicle Use in the United States, based on 1990-1991 Data. Support for the social-cost analysis was provided by Pew Charitable Trusts, the Federal Highway(More)
Cement extravasation during kyphoplasty occurs between 4% and 9%, a much lower incidence than with vertebroplasty. However, because of the potential complications of cement in and around the spinal canal, any egress of cement outside the vertebral body is extremely concerning. Aborting the procedure will cease the extraosseous leakage and minimize potential(More)
