Now how big is the blob of oil that is left to fuel global warming?
I wish to draw your attention to the graphs on these links. Since 2005 the oil reserves of just one Western Hemisphere nation, Venezuela has more than doubled. Since 1980 the PROVEN oil reserves in Venezuela has INCREASED by 1500%. This is over and above the oil that Venezuela has already been produced during the last 30 years! Venezuela now has leap forged Saud Arabia in proven oil reserves. Dramatic increases have occurred in all oil producing countries, except in ours.
Unlike water, oil is a finite resource, I freely admit that. I will even conditionally admit that I don’t know how much RECOVERABLE oil is in the Earth’s crust. The condition is that you BlueBee must also admit that neither you, nor T. Boon Pickens, nor Al Gore nor anyone else knows how much recoverable crude oil is in the Earth’s crust. Fair enough?
I also think that in less than 10 seconds and with a stroke of his pen, the President can do the same thing to the United States oil reserves that in the last 30 years happened to Venezuela‘s reserves. That is double our oil reserves and finally increase our PROVEN oil reserves by 1,500% like Venezuela did, or even much much more. The oil is there, it exists, we know it exists, we even know where it is, and we know how to get to it. The oil is simply tied up in great Gordian knots of government red or green tape. As a result of policy and politics this oil is removed from being counted as proven reserves. Out of the voters sight, out of the voters mind is Obama’s motto. In truth, we are out of our mind to trust any politician but especially the current administration. That is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
It is also true that the De-Growth or anti growth Luddites in power now are determined to keep every last drop of oil, every last lump of coal, and every last cubic yard of natural gas out of our sight and out of our minds by keeping it hidden deep under ground, even if it means returning you to the slow starvation your greedy money grubbing ancestors selfishly fled the old world to escape.
The Luddite liberals are determined to turn America into a more compliant version of Charles Dickens’ work farm described in his second novel, Oliver Twist. You must remember that Oliver Twist was not exploited by the free enterprise system but rather by Victorian England’s welfare system that Dickens described in disgusting detail.
Can any of you people in a small quivering voice say, “Please Sir, may I have some more gruel…??” No you say?? Well you better learn now, because on Obama’s green jobs welfare farm your very life may well depend on your ability to say it in the most pitiful manner!!!
