THIS COULD MAKE YOU MAD

Now I just wonder what would happen in this country if every one of you sent this to every one in your address book.
By the way...this is all true. Check it out at the link below!!!
GOOGLE it or follow this link. It will blow your mind.

http://www.usgs.gov/newsroom/article.asp?ID=1911

AMAZING! Think of all the people that could have jobs.

Also if I may add, about 6 months ago I was watching a news program on oil and one of the Forbes Bros. was the guest. This is out of context, but this is the actual question as asked. 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 ('08) that only
scientists and oil men knew was coming, but man was it big. It was a revised report (hadn't been updated since '95) 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.' And 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..

2... And if THAT didn't throw you on the floor, then this next one
should - because it's from TWO YEARS AGO!

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, leading 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 be.
Think OPEC just might be funding the environmentalists?
Got your attention/ire up yet? Hope so! Now, while you're thinking about it .... and hopefully P.O'd, do this:

3. Pass this along. If you don't take a little time to do this,
then you should stifle yourself the next time you want to complain
about GAS PRICES--- because by doing NOTHING, you've forfeited your right to complain.

So whats the sacred "O" doing with this info ?
Everybody knows it , they really dont care, as it doesn't fit in to their plan.
And every time someone in the middle east farts ,the price of oil goes up.

But the Greenie leftys have this plan to go green no matter what the cost.

mmmm..... the ERA won't let us permit a refinery, tansport mass quantities of oil across "barren" country, etc. We are chasing our own tails. We could tell every middle eastern country to go pound sand. We won't. Isn't it funny that the libs want to all cry "BIG OIL", yet this info is right in fron of Bammy, yet he doesn't do a thing. They're all corrupt. Vote 'em all out.....only way.

What it is, is this> Our goverment, or what not wants to bleed us dry with high oil prices, on over seas oil, and at the same time, use up all the oil overseas. And when it's gone, when ever that maybe.

Ten turn around charge the Hell out of the other countrys over seas's for our oil. Tell them if you want some oil it's a $1,000 a barrel.

The government has nothing to do with oil prices. And, the governemnt has little to do with using up all the oil.

The price of oil has very little to do with the cost of a gallon of gas. The reason the companies that do the refining of oil into gasoline purchase their oil from other countries, is the same reason why t-shirts and running shoes are made elsewhere. It's cheaper. The cost of a gallon of gasoline is somewhat based on market trends, but mostly on the capicity of the refineries to make and then store the gasoline prior to sale at the pump. Nothing more.

If you want to complain to your congressman about something, complain about the fact that it's nearly impossible to get a new refinery built in this country because of all the environmental, and worker safety restrictions.

To the contrary, I travel quite frequently. I try to stay on this side of the northern border though. I don't want that snooty Canadian attitude rubbing off on me, eh.

tarro - fail to see what in the Snopes report says the oil isn't there. Or that it's unrecoverable. Please step aside while we save our economic future AND be responsible at the same time. It's not impossible to do both.

uuhh, something is jiving according to the USGS link provided.

A few points:

The headline from the story
3 to 4.3 Billion Barrels of Technically Recoverable Oil Assessed in North Dakota and Montana’s Bakken Formation—25 Times More Than 1995 Estimate—
What a leap! from 3-4.3 Billion to 503 Billion?

Also, the 503 Billion is estimated by the Energy Information Administration?

The article linked to states:
USGS is the only provider of publicly available estimates of undiscovered technically recoverable oil and gas resources.
So, I wonder how the EIA made their estimates?

Are you blind or stupid? The Snopes article includes TONS of discussion about the amount that is estimated and the amount recoverable.

Once again, another email forward blatantly posted without doing any research for the truth.

Good going!

Tarro, I have a bit of news for you. The Earth was around for billions of years before man took one step on it's soil. It will be around long after we are gone.

This "save the planet" crap is BS. What you are suggesting is more like "save the humans".

Stupidity can be cured. Ignorance is for life!

No. But I do fail to see a reason why we shouldn't be allowed to recover even one barrel if it is done in a responsible manner. We can argue amounts, or over-inflated calculations. It doesn't matter. The fact is that we depend on a resource from other countries that can and should be eliminated - through even more than tapping our natural resources.

Gee, I thought from reading most of your posts, SSN, that we agreed on most things. I didn't call you dumb, why am I now dumb?

fwiw...

Follow the money...

Whatever is the price on the spot/futures market, money flows from West to East....I suspicion strongly collusion between the opaque institutions that control this flow...Perhaps a significant amount of that flow is rediverted West, lining the coffers of those who purchase the oil....If we drilled our own resources, competition and increased supply would necessarily cause the world price to drop, causing a reduction of this Westerly flow...Powerful people would be unhappy...Don't want that, so the useful idiots of the left prevent access to resources which are the property of the citizens of the United States....Easy to see....Kida scary, huh?
