I ran across this while doing some research and I was captivated by the content included in this document. I wanted to share it with the community as a good read. I thought it was well put together and gave great insights on energy overall, the use of energy, the global outlook, what the recent past has looked like, what the future will look like, information about the shift in the middle class, transportation, electricity, coal, alternative energy, gas, shale, chemicals, exports, technology and much more. I read it start to finish. If you haven't seen it and are interested in an overall outlook through the eyes of Exxon's research team (which is not Exxon specific at all) I recommend it.
