From information in an article in The Independent on January 18, 2003: “American economist Jeremy Rifkin has calculated how long current known oil reserves in various countries will last. The findings are very revealing: in the US they will last just 10 years; in Iran, 53 years; in Saudi Arabia, 55 years; in UAE [United Arab Emirates], 75 years; in Kuwait, 116 years; and in Iraq, an astonishing 526 years.”
