The United States has estimates of over 400 years of oil in the Bakken and Green River Reserves. There is additional oil in many other parts of the world.

Russia has also provided a theory that oil is caused through Abiotic methods and successful wells have been dug using this theory. If true we may have many generations of oil left.

This doe not mean that the use of oil and fossil fuels does not have problems associated with it.
