This came attached to a Bakken reserve email which I'm trying to format to fit the blog at the moment. This will look very familiar to you, and comes around often as an email. Today a blogger friend pointed this out to me and said he'd used Snopes. I don't use Snopes anymore. It is a mom/pop operation with a left lean. So I went to Factcheck.org. There is a lot of truth to this email. The figures may vary, but the truth is that there is an enormous amount of oil, natural gas, other chemicals and gasses, coal which can be processed so that it is clean and non-polluting, oil shale and oil sands. We DON'T HAVE TO BE ENERGY DEPENDENT ON ANYONE. We don't have to pay an Obama ransom for a gallon of gas.
OUR OIL RESERVES IN THE WILLISTON BASIN OF THE USA. LISTEN TO THEIf this doesn't bring you to red-faced fury and white knuckles, I don't know what will.
GOVERNMENT AUDIO INTERVIEW AT THE END. YOU WILL BE SO OUTRAGEOUSLY ANGRY.
OIL---you better be sitting down when you read this ! !
You "will" pay $5 a gallon + again and you won't complain loud enough to
make a difference, RIGHT!
Here's an astonishing 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:
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
"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," reportsThe 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
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
- 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.
http://www.usgs.gov/newsroom/article.asp?ID=1911 Guess what? The
Democrats took control of the house and senate in 2006. Amazing isn't
The deal is this. We can be energy independent. We have oil and gas for a couple of thousand years.
WHY ARE WE NOT MAKING THIS INFORMATION COMMON KNOWLEDGE?
WHY IS THE GOVERNMENT LYING REPEATEDLY? WHY ISN'T OBAMA DRILLING?
IT'S TIME! DO YOU WANT GAS TO GO UP INCREMENTALLY EVERY DAMN WEEK?
TALK THIS UP ON RADIO STATIONS. SEND THIS TO YOUR NEWSPAPERS. PUT IT IN EMAILS. PUT IT ON YOUR BLOGS.
THE BAKKEN (WILLISTON BASIN) IS REAL. I'VE DRIVEN THROUGH PART OF IT. IT IS VIRTUALLY UNTAPPED.
