North America's Energy Resources

They'll tell you we are running out. They lie.

It ain't about energy's about energy CONTROL. Too much energy leads to too much freedom and they don't want that.

Bingo, Mumblix. Some years ago, during the "cold fusion" hysteria IIRC, one of the far-left environmentalists--it might have been Paul Ehrlich, but I can't recall for certain--commented that he could think of nothing more horrifying than a cheap, abundant, clean, and potent energy source being readily available to the average person. That tells you everything you need to know about the left's priorities for energy production.

Drill Baby, Drill. Keystone Pipeline must be done!

They wouldn't lie, would they? I mean, look at the fine work they did on Climate Change and saving the Polar Bears.

Waltj, that was Amory Lovins in the 70's. He said, IIRC, that mankind finding a cheap inexhaustible snergy source would be like giving a child a machine gun.

Yeah, and the section about barriers to development lists all the laws, regulations and agencies that are preventing the development of these resources. It is a long list. To paraphrase Pogo, "We have met the enemy and it is the United States government."

Walt! "That tells you everything you need to know about the left's priorities for energy production." No! It tells you everything you need to know about the left's priorities for the average person.

Wait ... America has natural resources? Alert the media!

There is a decimal slip in the first section. That should read enough oil for 3,000 years, not 30 years.

BUTCH: Thanks. It was that long ago? Time flies when you're having fun...

Jeff B: Agreed. I'm sure they'd find a way to exempt themselves from enforced shortages that the rest of us would have to endure.
