GAO: Recoverable Oil in Colorado, Utah, Wyoming 'About Equal to Entire World
I recall the great shale oil debacle here in KY a few decades ago.
We gonna strip mine all of those states?
When we don't have access to conventional reserves, what good are these?
We don't hve access because of the libs and evironmental whack jobs. What exactly is your point?
Yes not wanting pollution is totally whacko
they are fracking many areas of these states, that is why they want to build pipelines to the soujthern coast for refining.There is an oil glut currently in the USA
Pollution? Oil is as natural as wind or solar. The only pollution is in your mind.
My point was to infer what you just stated.
ROTFL yep and cigarettes dont cause cancer either its just in your mind
How do you define an environmental wack job?
Anyone who thinks polution is bad
I think pollution is bad, and I'm in the business of generating it.
i would assume that not everything in your life is absolutely absolute.
How clean must be the energy that you and the other 7 billion people on the planet use? Can there be any resulting change in the planet to create energy for people to use?
What are you willing to compromise or are you against any compromise at all?
CO2 isn't a pollutant, numbnuts.
Only imbeciles believe we can live in an industrialized world with zero pollution. The only question: what is the acceptable level? Any rational person should be perfectly satisfied with curent levels.
An environment wack job is anyone who agrees with anything you post.
Green River is Shale Oil. No one wants to invest in Shale Oil as it is unprofitable. There are currently 10 different testing sites in the Green River Formation, to see if they can do it economically. So far no company has stepped up to the challenge.
This is not to be confused with Oil bearing Shale, which is completely different. Oil bearing shale is expensive but still profitable with today's prices. Oil Shale is not. In truth it is not even Oil Shale, that is a misnomer. its true name is Kerogen Shale, which is no more oil then Corn is.
I define someone as that when they are unreasonably committed to things they think are important somehow related to nature that are in conflict with reality.
In Tombstone AR, a fire burned the all of the underbrush and wooded areas on a hill nearby which formerly was the habitat for three endangered species. The subsequent monsoons washed away the top soil and destroyed the piped springs which provide water to Tombstone.
All of the individuals of the endangered species are dead and gone, but the Environmental Whack Jobs say that the area is a protected reserve even though they were burned or drowned and the wasteland that remains cannot support the.
A wheel barrow has been cited as being over mechanized to effect repairs on the pips to the springs.
Tombstone, Water, and the Bureaucrat Standing In Between – Tenth Amendment Center
The town currently relies on ground wells to survive, but there is an insufficient supply to protect the town in the event of more disasters. City manager George Barnes said their present situation “doesn’t allow for a building fire, a well-pump failure; it doesn’t allow for much of anything.”
At issue for the feds is the spotted owl, and other endangered species, whose habitat is in the mountains near Tombstone. Of course the fires and floods destroyed their habitat, but rules are rules, right?
Caring more about unproven over the needs of folks today is whacko. Contrary to your beliefs, AGW is unproven. By a longshot.
If I agreed with what you're saying we'd both be wrong, but then, even head Republican, Mitt Romney, agrees with President Obama on this issue.
"I don't speak for the scientific community, of course," Romney said at a Town Hall-type meeting in New Hampshire. "But I believe the world's getting warmer."
Romney then added, "And number two, I believe that humans contribute to that."
That's heresy in many GOP circles - and a position the other Republican candidates have not taken in public.
But the former Massachusetts governor was just getting warmed up.
The Republican front-runner said he wanted to wean the U.S. off its dependence on foreign oil by seeking alternative sources of energy - something President Obama has also called for.
Romney did not call for more oil drilling in the U.S., as Sarah Palin and other Republicans have been doing. Instead, Romney said Americans should do more to conserve energy.
"I'm told that we use almost twice as much energy per person as does a European and more like three times as much energy as does a Japanese citizen," he said. "We can do a lot better."
Romney wrapped up his remarks by calling for cooperation with other countries in combating global warming.
"We don't call it America warming, we call it global warming," he said. "And if there's going to be an effort in this, it has to be global in scope."
