Oil

I recieved this in my email, Any experts or informed people that know about this.

!American & Canadian Oil - can you believe this!!!?
{VERY interesting!}
OIL - you better sit down.
Here's an interesting read, important and verifiable information: 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:





http://bakkenshale.net/bakkenshalemap.html

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?


Now, while you're thinking about it, do this: 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.

--------
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.

It has been reported in the news, the known reserves in the Oil Sands of Alberta, are second largest in the world (second to the Saudi reserves). There is certainly alot of opposition to the extraction process to get the oil out of the sands. The extraction process is not cheap either, and they say they need an $85 per barrel price to make it viable.

Why are we not extracting it? The current plan seems to be "use theirs first and when it is all gone then start on ours".

In the case of Alberta, they are booming with Oil Sands development and extraction. Much of the extraction gets piped into the USA.

But geee if opened up the Bakken's then we would not be supporting the mid east and they would hate us... Oh right they do anyway... since oils days are numbered anyway best to open up the fields here and keep the money in this country where it will create jobs and wealth.

They are against nuclear, too dangerous. They are against oil, too much chance of a spill. They are against coal, acid rain and mercury. They are against burning wood- trees lost, and carbon emissions. They are against wind farms offshore, unsightly. Not much left to power us. At least its good to know we have the oil in this report to fall back on. I think we`re gonna need it.

It seems like common sense to drill and use it, but I don't see alot of common sense these days.

Earth First we'll log, mine, drill the other planets later.
