There’s a “New Fuel Revolution” taking place right now … a fundamental shift in the entire energy landscape. My colleague Sean Brodrick says it could be THE biggest profit story of 2012 and beyond, and I want you to get all the details right away.
Below, Sean explains more about why this is happening … and also how investors like us can play it. — Best wishes, Kevin
Yesterday I told you how it’s getting harder and harder to find new sources of oil — and why that essentially means “peak oil” has already arrived.
No, the day where we bid a total “goodbye” to oil isn’t here yet, but it IS fast approaching.
Remember, as we discussed yesterday, “peak oil” doesn’t mean that there isn’t any more oil in the world. It means we’re at the point where global oil production tops out, and starts to decline.
However, to make matters worse, this is happening just as billions of people are adopting modern lifestyles that demand even MORE energy … demands that oil alone simply cannot meet. Not for the long haul, anyway.
The World Currently Uses More Than a
Thousand Barrels of Oil PER SECOND!
Worldwide, oil demand is up nearly 15% just since 2002.
When you break that down, it amounts to 60,000 barrels every minute … or more than 1,000 barrels of oil every single second!
Most of this new growth came from countries like China and India … and other emerging markets in South America and Africa.
And amazingly, this rising demand just keeps accelerating.
Sheer population growth is partly to blame: In fact, the world population is expected to hit 9 billion people by 2040.
But what’s even more important is the fact that all these new people are living lives that are far more energy-intensive!
They’re heating more of their homes …
They’re driving greater numbers of cars …
They’re traveling farther and more frequently …
And the end result is a sort of compounding effect that requires ever-greater amounts of oil.
You can see this very clearly just by looking at the numbers.
For example, countries outside the Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development — basically non-Western countries — have seen explosive oil demand growth since the 1990s.
In fact, as you can see from looking at this chart, non-OECD oil demand has nearly DOUBLED in less than 20 years!
Even now, major emerging market countries such as China, India and even Saudi Arabia have reached the important GDP-per-capita range where oil demand historically blasts off.
So Clearly, the World Is Going to Need
New Energy Solutions … and Fast!
Look, at this point what the world is REALLY addicted to is energy itself.
For the last hundred years, oil has simply been the most convenient source of that energy.
But now that oil is getting harder and harder to find, the world is clamoring for a new solution — one that can carry us for the next 50 or 100 years (or even longer).
We urgently need cheaper, cleaner, more-plentiful sources of energy to solve the world’s growing needs.
And I’ll explore some of these alternative energy sources in my column tomorrow.

But as you’ll see, I think most of the proposed “solutions” are still many years — perhaps even decades — from practical implementation.
In fact, there’s only one REALISTIC solution to the oil problem available right here and right now.
I am utterly convinced that the rest of the world is rapidly waking up to this same conclusion.
And most importantly, I believe the very best companies involved in this solution stand to make early investors very rich … much sooner than most people currently believe possible.
Through exhaustive research, I’m figuring out who those companies are right now. And I’ll tell you all about them — along with all the details on this “New Fuel Revolution” that’s getting started — tomorrow.
It all happens promptly at noon Eastern Time tomorrow when my special presentation, “How the New Fuel Revolution Can Make You Rich” will go online.
I’ll send you a reminder just before it goes live, but just in case you miss that … you can always use this link to access it. No registration or fee will be required to watch it.
I can guarantee that you will be amazed at some of the things I’ve been uncovering … so don’t miss it!
