It has been proven there's enough oil to last for over 100 years, it is just that it is very difficult to get to it and extract it. That's why alternative fuels that need no electricity to recharge them are being sought after by scientists today.

Is it difficult to get to this oil using today's technology or using the technology we will have 100 years from now?

Think about the tools we had 100 years ago and look at where we get a lot of our oil today. Also think about the rising retail cost of oil products. The scare tactics aren't working on me.

Technology is helping extract hard to find oil today , it just costs more and takes more time to get it finished. The oil platforms out in the oceans are examples. They are now drilling at unheard of depths to reach oil but they are accomplishing it.

Why ? The results are in the same base unit..
One would expect that countries like The Netherlands and Germany show a greater emission/capita than Russia. This is simply because they have greater wealth, so more motorized vehicles/capita, more money to take leisure drives, higher production rates etc.
And yet your map shows that the emissions are similar.. The only conclusion can be that Russia has a relatively high emission/capita given their economic state.
