    Maybe Hug Chav will liquify it and ship it to the U.S. east coast. He's such a philanthropist.

    There is at least 130 years of natural gas that we know of in the US, much of which has become accessible through new technologies to unlock deposits in shale.

    There is also something like 1 trillion barrels of oil in shale in the US. When we figure out how to crack that nut, we'll be spending more for a bottle of water than a gallon of gas.

    Sounds like Hugo was on a cruise eating beans.

    First, a moment of silence for all the velicoraptors (there must have been TRILLIONS of them) who gave their lives to become this imaginary "Fossil Fuel"

    "Methane (CH4), the principal component of natural gas, is abundant in the outer solar system. It can be harvested from Mars, Titan, Jupiter, and many other planets and moons. With fuel waiting at the destination, a rocket leaving Earth wouldn't have to carry so much propellant, reducing the cost of a mission."

    "The atmospheres of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune all contain methane, and Pluto has frozen methane ice on its surface. New kinds of missions to these worlds may become possible with methane rockets."

    Hey Genius, how many Velicorpators or green plants or fish are there in the outer solar system to decompose over geological time to make that methane?

    Take your time.

    Well. Unlike one of your fine corporations finding something, say, off of Floridastan, this will actually benefit the average Venezuelan quite well.

    Go wave your flags. What ever happened with The Exxon Valdez ?:eusa_hand:
    OH we can't talk about that.:cuckoo: Gawd Blass Amurkastan.
