    For how many coming years the oil reserves of whole World can serve humans?

    How much oil is left in world's oil reserves? Are we ready for an oil-free world?

    Well! According to The Insider the oil supplies will last for next 10 years. Huge reason to worry!

    We have to look for Solar based or other natural resources, because the reserve won't suffice for another 20 years...

    The problem is much greater than people realize. We use oil for fertilizer, for the pair of jeans I am wearing now, for the toothpaste we use and the tires on the car ... it's all oil. There's oil in my cellphone, computer, the paint on the walls, in everything really.
    So how are we ready for a free-oil world? I am not really sure.

    There is still a lot of oil. The problem is that as time passes, the oil that is left gets increasingly difficult to access. If technology is developed that can significantly improve extraction techniques, the fossil fuel age could go on for decades. At some point, however, humanity will have to make some major adjustments. Here's a more detailed answer that I wrote a while back:
