Oil Resources in The USA

This post is a subset of a more comprehensive post
which quantifies why we should “Drill Here, Drill Now”.

Below are just A FEW of the vast resources of
oil and oil equivalents available in the USA:


USA, Mean Estimate From Oil Shale = 800 Billion Barrels
USA, Mean Estimate From Coal Liquefaction = 535 Billion Barrels
USA, Bakken Formation = “on average, 200 billion barrels” Technically Recoverable
USA, Mean Estimate From The Outer Continental Shelf = 86 Billion Barrels
USA, Mean Estimate From ANWR = 10.4 Billion Barrels
World Proven Reserves - See this spreadsheet downloaded from this page

Oil Shale technology was proven on a commercial scale at least as far back as 1924.
The largest Oil Shale facility has been in commercial operation since 1980.
The guidelines exist for environmental protection in developing Oil Shale.
The ONLY remaining obstacle is the most dangerous religious cult ever.
Coal liquefaction was fully proven on a commercial scale no later than 1955.

Reuters Strikes Again

Reuters gets “millions” confused with “billions” and the U.S. Department of the Interior gets “upper bound” confused with “the midpoint”.

Is it any wonder that so many Americans are confused?


Reuters inaccurately reported (emphasis mine):

“The U.S. Interior Department said on Monday it will propose regulations on Tuesday to establish a commercial oil shale program that could result in up to 800 million barrels of recoverable oil on public lands in western United States.”

The press release which the “journalist” apparently drew her “information” from inaccurately reported (emphasis mine):

“On Tuesday, July 22, 2008, Secretary of the Interior Dirk Kempthorne will announce proposed regulations to establish a commercial oil shale program that could result in the addition of up to 800 billion barrels of recoverable oil from public lands in the western United States”

But, quoting this source (emphasis mine):

“Estimates of the oil resource in place within the Green River Formation range from 1.5 to 1.8 trillion barrels. Not all resources in place are recoverable. For potentially recoverable oil shale resources, we roughly derive an upper bound of 1.1 trillion barrels of oil and a lower bound of about 500 billion barrels. For policy planning purposes, it is enough to know that any amount in this range is very high. For example, the midpoint in our estimate range, 800 billion barrels, is more than triple the proven oil reserves of Saudi Arabia.”

I am 99.99% certain this is the report which the DOI drew its information from.

It’s not “up to 800 million”. And, it’s not “up to 800 billion”. It’s up to “1.1 trillion”. The MEAN ESTIMATE is 800 billion!

32,000 "Climate Deniers" (and Growing)

Updated 12/11/10

First, click the image for
some particularly inconvenient truths:

First, click the image for a particularly inconvenient truth

Next…
Quoting Kathryn Jean Lopez interviewing Lawrence Solomon:
“Lopez: What Denier fact could be characterized as most inconvenient for Al Gore?

Solomon: The claim that there is a consensus on climate change. This claim is based on the media’s often repeated claim that the 2000 to 2500 scientists associated with the UN’s panel endorsed the U.N.’s report. In fact, as the Secretariat of the UN panel told me, those 2500 scientists are merely reviewers of some of the hundreds of input studies that went into the mix. They endorsed nothing. There is no consensus and there never has been.
Q) Relative to what the media report about climate change, where is there scientific consensus?

A) Scientists broadly agree that the planet has warmed over the last 100 years and that human activity has probably contributed to that warming.

Q) Where does the consensus break down?

A1) There is no agreement on how much (or how rapidly) the planet has warmed in the last 100 years.

Heavily massaged data from land based measuring stations say one thing.

Satellite data say another thing.

Peer reviewed science demonstrates that the two are NOT in agreement!

Rigorous inspections demonstrate that the land based measurement stations are laughably unreliable.

A2) There is no agreement on what portion of the warming was caused by human activity.

Q) What scientific consensus would most surprise the average lay person?

A) The FACT is that the overwhelming majority of scientists do NOT favor regulating CO2!

Liberal Fascism - Abortion

Click the image below to review
my general observations on “Liberal Fascism”

In his book, Jonah Goldberg argues that the so-called “Liberal” abortion agenda is one of a great many parallels between American Liberalism and Nazi Fascism. Is he correct? Let’s examine the history and the present.

For the Nazis, abortion and forced sterilization were means to an end. That end was a purely racist form of negative Eugenics.

American “Liberalism” has, as a core “value”, what they like to call a “pro-choice” agenda. But, what are the roots of this agenda? What was the original intent? Is the intent and the outcome substantially different today?

Margaret Sanger created the institution which would become Planned Parenthood.

Margaret Sanger was an avowed Socialist. Nazi was an acronym for “National Socialist German Workers Party”.

Margaret Sanger was an overt, outspoken, rabid racist who openly advocated for (quoting my previous observation) “a purely racist form of negative Eugenics”.

Margaret Sanger favored forced sterilization as a means to her racist ends.

Margaret Sanger, who favored forced sterilization as a means of pursuing her rabidly racist eugenics agenda, was actually opposed to abortion (proving, I suppose, that she had some vestigial concept of morality). Sanger quoted herself in her 1938 autobiography to have said:

“abortion was the wrong way—no matter how early it was performed it was taking life”

Okay, it is historically and objectively undeniable that the original agenda of the individual who founded what would become Planned Parenthood was both deplorable and remarkably similar to the agenda of the Nazi Fascists. But, what about today?

FACT:
Black babies, today, are about 3 times more likely to be aborted than white babies.

Okay, facts are facts. But, are the above FACTS mere happenstance?

FACT:
Approximately 80% of Planned Parenthood clinics (where abortions are performed) are located in minority neighborhoods. Why? To “serve” minority communities? Or, to decimate them? ALL adherents of Eugenics earnestly believe they are doing both their targets and humanity at large a big favor by providing their Eugenic “service”.

Just watch these two videos and ask yourself what sort of “service” is provided by the “freedom of choice” movement:

PART I: Planned Parenthood Racism Investigation


PART II: Planned Parenthood Racism Investigation

Iraq War Media Deceptions 101

Let’s just barely skim the surface of the media deception regarding the war in Iraq:

1) Read the 2002 Congressional authorization to use force in Iraq (supported by 58% of Senate Democrats and 39% of House Democrats).

2) Iraq had WMD stockpiles and the United Nations knew it!

If Saddam had no stockpiles of WMD, how do you explain 16 UN Security Council Resolutions over a period of 12 years, 14 of which deal directly with WMD?

Pay special attention to UNSCR 1441, which essentially said to Saddam (paraphrasing):
“Better hide the WMD, The United States will be invading 30 days from today”
But, that notice was given on 11/8/02 and we did not invade until 3/20/03. No wonder we have not found most of the WMD which the United Nations KNEW was there!

Even so, ISG, post war, REPORTED they found limited quantities of WMD. ISG also found clear evidence of intent to produce more WMD, including thermonuclear weapons. They failed to find clear evidence of large quantities of recently manufactured WMD. But, they were also:
“unable to rule out the possibility that WMD was evacuated to Syria before the war.”
Various other sources offer evidence that the WMD was evacuated to Syria.

Given fighter jets were buried in the desert, there clearly exists the possibility that WMD was buried in the desert.

3) 550 metric tons of yellowcake

The Iraq Survey Group devoted an entire section of their report to a “Survey of Structures at Tuwaitha Nuclear Research Center”. In that section, they reported that (emphasis mine):
“Certain structures pose hazards from a radiological and unexploded ordnance point of view. These structures were not entered, and the precise hazards were not determined”
During the first week of July, 2008 we finally learned that 550 metric tons of yellowcake had been secreted from Baghdad to Canada.

Was that huge stockpile sitting in one or more of those structures which “were not entered”?

Combine the above report with this quote from the (ISG) Duelfer Report:
“Senior Iraqis—several of them from the Regime’s inner circle—told ISG they assumed Saddam would restart a nuclear program once UN sanctions ended”

4) Saddam trained al Qaeda in the use of chemical and biological WMD.

Quoting an excerpt from the July, 2004 report from Bipartisan Senate Select Committee on Intelligence:
"The Central Intelligence Agency reasonably and objectively assessed in Iraqi Support for Terrorism that the most problematic area of contact between Iraq and al-Qaida were the reports of training in the use of non-conventional weapons, specifically, chemical and biological weapons"
Chapter XII, Page 346, Conclusion 94

In other words, Saddam trained al Qaeda in the use of biological and chemical WMD.

Every Democrat on that committee signed off on that finding.

5) Bin Laden was offered “a safe haven in Iraq” (and even Bill Clinton knew it).

Quoting The Bi-Partisan 9/11 Report:
“Iraqi officials offered Bin Ladin a safe haven in Iraq”
Page 66
“Saddam Hussein wanted bin Laden in Baghdad”
Page 134
In other words Saddam wanted to give al Qaeda precisely the same state sponsorship that led to 9/11.

A more comprehensive analysis of just how badly the world was misled by the so-called “journalists” who “reported” on the findings of the 9/11 commission can be found here. Each quote can be verified here.

Note: If any given quote spans 2 or more lines, the Adobe Acrobat “find” feature will not find it. If you fail to locate any given quote, select various smaller subsets of the quote until you find it (and you will).

6) Whether he trained the 9/11 terrorists or not, Saddam clearly trained terrorists at Salman Pak.

Quoting PBS in conjunction with The New York Times:
“I assure you, this operation [9/11] was conducted by people who were trained by Saddam [at Salman Pak].”
The above assertion may or may not be true. Contrary to what so-called “journalists” would tell you, it has not been proven either way. But, no reasonable person, Charles Duelfer included, denies that Saddam trained LOTS of terrorists at Salman Pak.

Click here for more on Saddam’s terrorist training camps.

Click here to explore the Saddam - al Qaeda link in FAR more detail.

7) Now, put 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 together and tell me what you get.

What you get is a WMD 9/11, quite probably a thermonuclear 9/11! But, I guess our so-called “journalists” forgot to tell you that!

The Truth About Tax Cuts

Updated 9/7/2010


A few facts about lower marginal tax rates which Dems would prefer you not know (click each image to learn more):

1) Lower marginal tax rates have not produced lower revenues.

In fact, dropping the marginal tax rate, by virtue of The Laffer Curve, slightly increased real tax revenues (meaning tax revenues as a percentage of GDP):

2) Those who make the highest incomes (I’m not one) have continued to pay the vast majority of the taxes (even more so than before):

“The top 1 percent of income earners paid 40 percent of all federal income taxes in 2007, while the bottom 50 percent paid only 3 percent.”

Click the image to learn more

4) And best of all:

As the marginal tax rate has gone down, recessions have been shorter & less severe, expansions have been longer & better and the unemployment rate has steadily declined (providing the greatest benefit to the lowest income earners).

Click the image to enlarge it and view the source:
Click the image to enlarge it and view the source data

Note: In the above chart, the extended expansion and the associated decline in unemployment during the sixties was a function of JFK lowering the marginal tax rate from 91% to 70%.

Unfortunately, subsequent to JFK, LBJ burdened the economy with new taxes for Medicare and Medicaid, Nixon implemented idiotic wage and price controls, Ford didn’t do much of anything and Jimmy Carter did just about everything wrong. It was not until the Reagan years (and his dramatic tax cuts) that our economy rebounded from the compounded lunacy of LBJ, Nixon and Carter.

So, yes, despite what the propagandists in the media say, it is clearly in the best interest of all Americans that the Bush Tax Cuts be made permanent.

The Current Cooling Trend

Updated on 3/17/10 to include winter 2010 data.

Each of the following charts can be replicated by visiting this NOAA page and selecting the corresponding time frame and “Period” (either “Winter” or “Annual”).

Climate alarmist James Hansen & his Goddard Groupies have long argued that - according to their computer models - Man Made Global Warming is, by far, most evident in northern hemisphere winter warming. So, why has the United States been in a dramatic winter cooling trend ever since 1998?

Domestically, consistent with that 2001 paper, the period from 1962 to 2000
showed a winter warming trend of 0.96F per decade:
Click the image to enlarge
Click the image to enlarge

Of course, that 2001 paper made no mention of the
1954 to 1979 domestic winter cooling trend of -0.99F per decade:

Today, Hansen and the Goddard Groupies are even more loath to mention
the 1998 to 2010 domestic winter cooling trend of -3.15F per decade.
Click the image to enlarge it
Click the image to enlarge

In fact, despite all the alarmist propaganda,
there has been ZERO domestic winter warming in the last 23 years.
Click the image to enlarge it
Click the image to enlarge

For the annualized period 1998 to 2009,
the continental USA has been in a cooling trend of -1.03F per decade.
Click the image to enlarge it
Click the image to enlarge


Furthermore, directly quoting recent peer reviewed science:
“Our results suggest that global surface temperature may not increase over the next decade.”
My bet is we will see a continued and possibly accelerating cooling trend for considerably longer than “the next decade”.

According to Professor Bob Carter:
“In one of the more expensive ironies of history, the expenditure [of tax dollars] of more than $US50 billion ($60 billion) on research into global warming since 1990 has failed to demonstrate any human-caused climate trend, let alone a dangerous one.”
Okay, I’m not sure where Professor Carter got that “$US50 billion” figure. But, where else do you think all this research money comes from? ExxonMobil?

In the same essay, Professor Carter also notes:
“Not only do humans not dominate Earth's current temperature trend but the likelihood is that further large sums of public money are shortly going to be committed to, theoretically, combat warming when cooling is the more likely short-term climatic eventuality.”
Obviously, the data from NOAA back him up (even as the climate alarmists attempt, in vain, to tar and feather him).

There is, without doubt, a monetary incentive for climate scientists to come down on one side of the Climate Change debate. And, clearly, the overwhelming monetary incentive is to pimp for Man Made Global Warming.

Those scientists who dare to challenge the cultist orthodoxy with solid, peer reviewed scientific evidence are greeted, not with any financial incentive, but with fascist like attempts to silence all who dare to challenge the cultist orthodoxy:

Salazar vs. Data

Updated 7/6/08


U.S. Representative John Salazar, (D-CO), is (correctly, or otherwise) quoted to say:

“Is the oil and gas industry manipulating prices? I would say so. My numbers show that production was at 80 percent during Memorial Day when it is usually around 96 percent this time of year”

The Data Say:
Refinery Capacity Utilization has been within a steady range since 1991
And, has not been at or below 80% since Hurricane Katrina Struck

World Oil Balance vs. Price

This post is a subset of a more comprehensive post
which quantifies why we should “Drill Here, Drill Now”.


For 4 out of 5 quarters (Q4 of 2006 - Q4 of 2007), global demand for crude oil exceeded global supply. In response, spot prices for crude oil rose steeply and rapidly.

In Q1 of 2008, global supply of crude oil significantly exceeded global demand. By Q3 of 2008, spot prices for crude oil began to drop. There appears to be a consistent 2 quarter lag time in the price response to the balance (or imbalance) between global demand and global supply.

Note: The supply/demand imbalance never exceeded 0.8 million barrels per day (about the amount ANWR alone could have been producing if ANWR had been approved decades ago). It is reasonable to say that ANWR alone could have entirely prevented the price spike we saw in the summer of 2008.
