Noin vuosi sitten informoin öljy-tulee-loppumaan-uskovaisia uusilla öljyntuotantotavoilla:

According to Alex Cranberg of Denver-based Aspect Energy:
>>Saudi Arabia has only 55 (oil pumping) rigs working compared to 1,500 in the US. It could profitably (put into production) 500-1,000 rigs at even $20/bbl. If it did, the world would be awash in oil.
>>Technology is being used TODAY in numerous places to turn very common big (tar) and little (gas) petroleum molecules into nice, oily medium-sized ones (the stuff that high-grade crude is made of). Canada's tar sands alone are likely to produce 5 million bbl/day within a few years.
>>The biggest (natural) gas field in Texas today is a new field producing "shale gas" from titht rocks that even the most optimistic analysts excluded from possible petroleum sources several years ago. The world of petroleum is being revolutionaized by higher prices and the technology that those prices stimulate (this means: Boomtimes in petroleum).
Couple this with the hundreds and perhaps THOUSANDs of years-worth (at TODAY's usage rates) of oil the major oil producers recently admitted is or will be available, and you wonder what the rush is to force Americans to stop using cars and depend on unproven, inefficient and unreliable sources for energy such as wind.
So why don't the ecocommunists say anything about all this?
Nyt on lisäinfoa tarjolla:
Thats not to mention that we have over 500 years worth of energy in the form of Coal in America (that was a figure from 30 years ago and new findings have expanded it). At current prices for oil based energy it opens more expensive conversion processes (Coal to methane, and coal to oil forms) and more expensive cleaning systems (predigesting the coal to eliminate suphur etc...) for power plants.
It's not to mention lots of alternatives to sucking coal out of the ground: already, Sunoco, the Canadian natioalized oil company gets its oil from processing tar sands (you virtually NEVER hear about this, nor do you hear that this process creates terrible water, land and air pollution problem in supposedly uber-environmentalis Canada--the worst pollution per capita of ANY developed/developing nation). During the "oil crises" of the 70s, the US (and I believe Exxon) started a oil shale project that would likely, with advances in tech and rising prices, be more viable, today (it worked then, just was too expensive). Also (not sure...did I mention this previously?) with crude now hovering at $80(USD) bbl, manufactured oil (from animal waste products) is economically viable and that will last as long as humans consume animals.
Of course, libs don't want any of these things mentioned and the left-advocacy media is more than happy to toe the libbie line and NOT mention them.
I wonder why?
The reason is pretty simple. Their concern/goal in this regard has nothing at all to do with clean air, clean water, or terrorism. It has to do with stopping capitalism in general and our high-powered, high-tech society. Since these technologies would allow capitalism to continue forward relatively unaffected, they would never mention such a possibility as a "solution". They already know the solution. It's their solution to everything...eliminate capitalism, institute a totalitarian state (wqith good leftists in charge) and everything will be GREAT. Leaving capitalism intact isn't part of their playbook and can never be the solution to anything.
Ajatelkaa. Öljyä tulee riittämään maailman ääriin asti ja ihmiset Euroopassa panikoivat öljyn riittävyydellä täysin turhaan.
Esim. Jos epäolennaisten energiamuotojen (tuuli, aurinko jne.) mainostaminen mediassamme ja tutkimusrahoitus ja kehittäminen korvattaisiin pelkästään uusien öljylähteiden tai tuotantotapojen parantamiseen, voisi halvempi, omavaraisempi ja varmempi öljypohjainen energiasaatavuus olla todellisuutta jo tänä päivänä.
