Want what's good for America? Want job growth? Want cheaper gas? Drill. Time for Environmentalist to let their worthless grip on oil go, and allow for the markets to work. Quit trying to force EXPENSIVE green energy down the throats of the American people!

About 6 months ago, the writer was watching a news program on oil and one of the Forbes Bros. was the guest. The host said to Forbes, "I am going to ask you a direct question and I would like a direct answer; how much oil does the U.S. have in the ground?" Forbes did not miss a beat, he said, "more than all the Middle East put together." Please read below.
The U. S. Geological Service issued a report in April 2008 that only scientists and oil men knew was coming, but man was it big. It was a revised report (hadn't been updated since 1995) on how much oil was in this area of the western 2/3 of North Dakota, western South Dakota, and extreme eastern Montana ....... check THIS out:
The Bakken is the largest domestic oil discovery since Alaska's Prudhoe Bay, and has the potential to eliminate all American dependence on foreign oil. The Energy Information Administration (EIA) estimates it at 503 billion barrels. Even if just 10% of the oil is recoverable... at $107 a barrel, we're looking at a resource base worth more than $5..3 trillion.
"When I first briefed legislators on this, you could practically see their jaws hit the floor. They had no idea.." says Terry Johnson, the Montana Legislature's financial analyst.
"This sizable find is now the highest-producing onshore oil field found in the past 56 years," reports The Pittsburgh Post Gazette. It's a formation known as the Williston Basin , but is more commonly referred to as the 'Bakken.' It stretches from Northern Montana, through North Dakota and into Canada . For years, U. S. oil exploration has been considered a dead end. Even the 'Big Oil' companies gave up searching for major oil wells decades ago. However, a recent technological breakthrough has opened up the Bakken's massive reserves..... and we now have access of up to 500 billion barrels. And because this is light, sweet oil, those billions of barrels will cost Americans just $16 PER BARREL!
That's enough crude to fully fuel the American economy for 2041 years straight. And if THAT didn't throw you on the floor, then this next one should - because it's from 2006!
U. S. Oil Discovery- Largest Reserve in the World
Stansberry Report Online - 4/20/2006
Hidden 1,000 feet beneath the surface of the Rocky Mountains lies the largest untapped oil reserve in the world. It is more than 2 TRILLION barrels. On August 8, 2005 President Bush mandated its extraction. In three and a half years of high oil prices none has been extracted. With this motherload of oil why are we still fighting over off-shore drilling?
They reported this stunning news: We have more oil inside our borders, than all the other proven reserves on earth.. Here are the official estimates:
- 8-times as much oil as Saudi Arabia
- 18-times as much oil as Iraq
- 21-times as much oil as Kuwait
- 22-times as much oil as Iran
- 500-times as much oil as Yemen
- and it's all right here in the Western United States ..
HOW can this BE? HOW can we NOT BE extracting this? Because the environmentalists and others have blocked all efforts to help America become independent of foreign oil! Again, we are letting a small group of people dictate our lives and our economy.......WHY?
James Bartis, lead researcher with the study says we've got more oil in this very compact area than the entire Middle East -more than 2 TRILLION barrels untapped. That's more than all the proven oil reserves of crude oil in the world today, reports The Denver Post.
Don't think 'OPEC' will drop its price - even with this find? Think again! It's all about the competitive marketplace,- it has to. Think OPEC just might be funding the environmentalists?
Got your attention yet?
Pass this along. If you don't take a little time to do this, then you should stifle yourself the next time you complain about gas prices - by doing NOTHING, you forfeit your right to complain.

The technology of containing a well is fine, it was the operational procedures of drilling the deep well that was the question and failing in the Macondo disaster....not the technology to drill and extract safely. BP's corporate structure was to blame for that mess...trust me, my father knows the night OIM that was on that rig. Again, first-hand knowledge, ain't it great folks?

There is no reason to remove our wells from American waters other than corruption by Obozo to line George Soros's pocket..Obozo just took advantage of an accident..Never let a disaster go by without using it to your advantage..Its in the Demtard hand book

Sniper, please move beyond the sound bite....Repubs expanded Imperialism like no one ever has in the history of this country and the Democrats continued the expansionist policy set forth by the Repubs. Am i missing something here?
You THINK you know me but you really have no idea, I can only really be considered a libertarian if anything so there are issues that I will land on one side or the other depending on my interpretation of the idea and word of the Constitution.
Republicans are controlled such as Democrats are controlled....want change? VOTE RON PAUL!!!

And most of that oil is just unrecoverable with current technology...really the production companies don't want the technology to be developed till the time is right and the recovery tech won't drop the price of oil dramatically.
Funny thing is, it already exists...its called the Global hawk Reactor 10 and is based on microwave technology utilizing a military-grade magnetron.
BUT there are alot of instances where tree-huggers just really screw with companies like not letting a company dump aquifer water into a river, fearing the increase in temp was going to affect the wildlife...it did, grasses and wildlife down-stream sky-rocketed...I've seen it with my own eyes

So the tech was looked into by Shell but has a ways to go in development according to a Director of Operations I know.
