LesserEvil: tl;dnr.Seriously.... that article was a wall of text.Somebody needs to tell the author to GET TO THE POINT.
ChipNASA: WHEN DO WE START BOMBING TEXAS, OKLAHOMA, NORTH DAKOTA, PENNSYLVANIA, WYOMING, ALASKA, CALIFORNIA, NEW MEXICO?
dgames: It's early. What did I just read?
Fissile: .....not very many "gushers" left out there to find.
Tatterdemalian: The report backs up what neocons have been saying about "peak oil" for years... that it won't happen, unless we abandon capitalism for socialism and let the supreme authorities create an artificial, "political peak oil" out of media hype to keep the population in a compliant state of panic./of course, that just means history needs to be rewritten to say it was the neocons pushing "peak oil" and the environmentalists who knew all along it was a lie//had several co-workers tell me last week that Ronald Reagan was a Democrat, complete with videotaped "proof" in the form of all his speeches where he called himself a leader of the "blue states"///funny how even just reversing two colors can lead to historical revision... the media are already our unelected overlords, nothing left to do but welcome them
fringedmyotis: Behold, Farkers: The rare post that manages to include strawmen, BSABSVR, and logical fallacy all in one. Well done.
Rik01: The unadulterated fact is that the supply of oil is finite. Laid down millions of years ago, it's not been replenishing itself.We may have X billions of gallons in the ground yet, but once it's gone, that's it.
hdhale: For the U.S. to become energy self-sufficient, it needs to do three things:1. Find more domestic sources of energy production, be they oil, coal, solar, wind, nuclear, whatever.2. Continue to look for improving efficiencies in our energy consumption.3. Understand that doing #1 and #2 means money for research and development, whether it is from the private sector or the government, and we can't slack off in either department. Yes, that might mean more oil rigs off shore. Yes, that means you get used to not having incandescent bulbs.It's easy to say, harder to do, but we must do it or suffer the consequences.
Divorach: FTA: "There is one more factor to consider. None of this is good news for controlling atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations."
Luminaro: We should find a better cleaner and longer lasting solution to oil for domestic usage and bottle and sell the stuff for foreign exports specifically.
plcow: Just wait until they figure out how to unlock hydrates. That will make the shale revolution look like peanuts. Russia, Canada, the US, and the Nords will become the dominate powers then.
Pwnchubr: It's a good thing it well mostly be sold on the open market to raise gubbment dollars, rather than lower fuel prices.
