According to the latest BP Statistical Review of World Energy, total global reserves, by fossil fuel, are now: 

Coal - 1,139 billion tonnes

Natural Gas - 187 trillion cubic meters

Crude Oil - 1,707 billion barrels

While these volumes may seem large at a glance, at today's level of extraction and production rates, BP's estimated proved reserves*, by fossil fuel, would be exhausted as follows:

Coal - year 2169

Natural Gas - year 2068

Crude Oil - year 2066

BP dutifully acknowledges the abundance of factors that could easily alter these projections, but these factors do not alter the global policy imperitive to support sustainable fossil fuel extraction and development. All we need now is to define "sustainable" against ever changing market, political, and social conditions. 

*  Estimated years of extraction-remaining are estimated as the ratio of proved reserves to production per year.
