IAE forecasting self-sufficient by 2030 .. WEO, 'nearly self-sufficient 2035'. There are skeptics. Also reporting global energy demand growth 40%, say, in that time frame? Additional demand from China, India, etc. Interesting that oil production in USA in the 70s and 80s hit 3 billion + ... and USA has been the largest producer in the past, 2002 being the last time..
