At $50 Barrel there is ... amount available.

At $70...

At $100...

At $125...

At $150...


yes i know that but you said you got more than Canada and the Arab's what now it's going to cost more than what we have been paying $90+ per barrel and you still haven't told me why after you got rid off the Lib/dem president it's still in the ground . Why did you not start to extract it in the 80's or 90's like during the recession off the 80's . Surely Reagan would have started to extract it to pay off your debts back then , than let your country and the rest of the world go into a recession . Wasn't bush his running mate and isn't he heavily involved with oil but you still wish me to believe even he would not touch the oil . ............

New Technology of course.

Fracking.

Always knew it was there. Could NOW, economically get to it.

For a somewhat different reason: Deep Sea Oil...

Economics.

Attacking one, does not mean accepting the other, except for Ideologues.


please explain


You said it was because of a liberal/Dem president and the oil lines stopped when he was kicked out .

And now you what me you believe all the presidents since then have let you all be ripped off while you get father in dept . Seeing Global warming wasn't much of a issue before 2000 i find that very hard to believe .

And why has every document that i have looked at about when the oil will run out say we only got oil till 2050 if that ,if you got so much it would not run out till 2075 or later . You don't have that much oil mate or you are naive and i thought you are a bit smarter that that . You only got 25 billion barrel like the list i put up says and not 1 barrel more it's all crap your government does not whant the rest of the world to know you haven't got that much left as that may cause you a problem in terms of national security.

OMG!!!

YOU mentioned the 1970's, and I replied regarding the 1970's. Nothing more.

Correct?

After the 1970's, is a different matter.

Correct?

TODAY: The numbers you mention have to do with the PRESENT Economic Incentive to Drill for Oil.

NOT the amount of KNOWN Oil Present.

At $50 Barrel there is ... amount available.

At $70...

At $100...

At $125...

At $150...

Oil lines ended, and prices dropped, almost immediately, when he was removed from Office.


And so why are you still paying to much for your oil seeing as the Liberal/Left Democrat President.is no longer there . I spose then you never reached peak oil in 2000 ??? some 30 years later .

Attacking one, does not mean accepting the other, except for Ideologues.

Correct?

Edit: Meant to say Simple Minded Ideologues.

Edit #2: Since everyone understands Ideologues ARE Simple Minded. Forget Edit #1.

Umm then explain to me why you had the oil crisis in the 70's then . Or why you pay way more than what it would cost to produce it yourself .

Another Liberal/Left Democrat President.

Oil Tankers, Full of Oil, were lined up at our ports, unable to discharge their cargo. Because ALL our Reserve tanks were FULL!. I was there (in Texas), and we ALL thought is was a Crime committed, upon the American people, by that Administration.

Gas lines ended, and prices dropped, almost immediately, when he was removed from Office.

Everyone should understand (including Book - Non-Decision Making - People), that Every Response contemplated, may have negative consequences.

The limitation of Book Learning, is there is no real understanding that Decision Makers, never have ALL the information needed, nor really know what the consequences of their decisions will be. There is NO certainty!

It is a different Skill Set.

clyde then why is the U.S only 14th on the list if there is more oil in California than Canada and the Arab's ???

I've herd that b/s before if you got so much there why build the pipline from Canada or why would you even buy it from them ?

Me think's that is all bull

The only country to really threaten the Arab's is Canada as you lot won't buy your oil from the Socialist country Venezuela and they don't have the money to expand there oil as quick as the Canadian's would be able too

Understand 'The List' is for those Fields which drilling for Oil is Allowed. Not how much and where. Have to understand what the numbers really mean.

Taking an Industries Numbers (that is where they come from) and not understanding what they mean, or having another agenda, is not helpful.

Oh , by the way. Southern California Oil Reserves have been known for decades. But since drilling is NOT allowed: it is not included.

The Russians fighting a 'holy war' in Ukraine - http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-30518054

A Holy War?

These Idiot's, and their supporters, may not be Criminal. But are talking themselves into a Psychotic Fantasy World.

Putin comes to mind.

This attack, by the Criminal North Korean Government, against the Fundamental Freedoms of The West - An Act of War - may need an 'Interesting' response.

Everyone should understand that Every Response contemplated, may have negative consequences.

But one, or more, will have to be chosen.

Just the nature of The Universe.

It has everything to do with Russia. What do you think Putin is ranting about? the Ruble is falling. Why would anyone buy oil from Russia when Mideast oil is cheaper? Opec stated that they will maintain current production of oil. Why? You can be sure its not out of the goodeness of their hearts.

Mid-East Oil has Long Term Problems attempting to keep their vastly increasing young population 'Down', by Bribery, with Petro Dollars.

Presently... Oil and Gas are becoming abundant. There is MORE Known, relatively inexpensive, Oil/Gas in Southern California (not drilled) and US Federal Lands (not drilled),than the Mid-East and Canada combined.

But in the short term...

Russia and Iran (Saudi and Worlds Enemy's), Venezuela (People's Enemy's), Nigeria (a shame), have no way, via International Law, to stop their economic collapse.

What will they do?

Note: The collapse of the above Country's, especially Russia, will also significantly impact the Industrialized Country's.

'Interesting' future.

Since they seem to be stuck in the dark ages...

They are stuck in a Primitive and Barbaric Past.

They will only understand (unfortunately) a Primitive and Barbaric response.

Just the History, and understanding the Natural Human response when scared.

Those who accuse me of...

Have to understand that by a Dis-Proportional Response EARLY: LESS Lives will be lost. Both on Our Side and Their Side.

America has a crazy control problem ...
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/12/19/us-appeals-court-deems-gun-law-unconstitutional/
A federal appeals court in Cincinnati deemed a law unconstitutional that kept a Michigan man who was committed to a mental institution from owning a gun.

The three-judge panel of the Sixth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously ruled that a federal ban on gun ownership for those who have been committed to a mental institution violated the Second Amendment rights of 73-year-old Clifford Charles Tyler.

The headlines was not the decision.

It was a narrow decision regarding the ability to Petition THIS State, regarding you are now sane.

This State did not have The Mechanism to allow a person, committed for a few days, over 30 years ago, to have him declared sane (if he is) for the purpose to obtain a Firearms Permit.

The Court only ruled that this State MUST have this Mechanism in place.

Not about giving Mentally Ill persons the Right To...

The strike action of transport workers in Kiev. They did not receive salary for three months already.

So BOTH Russia and Ukraine collapse?

So?

Russia is starting to feel the effects of The Putin Collapse.

Start worrying about Putin, not Ukraine.

Actually, I never dispute the fact that Jihadi's are real, unreasonable and evil. What I'm disputing is you and CLYDE's idea that they can be defeated by superior firepower deployed by traditional military forces. History has proven this doesn't work over and over again, but you just wanna try it again and somehow expect that this time it will totally work. It failed the last time, and the times before that, be reasonable and admit that we need a new approach.

What New Approach would influence THEM to Reject THEIR Ideas?

What New Approach would so degrade Their, possible near future capacity, to Inflict Biological/Radiological attacks upon you and your loved ones.

What is your definition of Superior Firepower?

I am NOT speaking of Nuke's, which should not be necessary at this point. 10,000?, 20,000?, 30,000? 50,000? Western Dead from Biological or Radiological Attack, and would most likely result in a Probable Nuclear Revenge Attack.

This is the Real World. Not some Book Learning Prayer for 'Someone' to come up with a Plan to make you feel good.

No Historical Solution, which many times worked (at least for a few generations): Will result in anyone Feeling Good. At least in the Long Run.

Hopefully... We will take the actions necessary, BEFORE Mass Western Casualties.

I do understand that many people are kicking and screaming, when forced to Enter Reality.

If you don't believe in a God, and are a good person: Who cares about your Non-Belief?

The US and Canada doesn't.


well clyde if you can't expand it then you will be forced to buy fom them or the Russians

And your country still owes how much again ????

So your not realy in any better position then the Russians when it come to paying your debts

Canada might not have a problem but i'm not shore if they owe much .

You really don't understand what the numbers really mean. Nor Economics 101.

Oh, by the way...

If you really think it is that bad...

You have been living in Our House (but will not admit it), and IF it burns down, you are homeless.

Good luck.

For those who argue for gun control, read this & weep...

8 Children found dead in Cairns, Australia - reportedly stabbed

And very likely another illegal firearm involved again. :-(

Illegal? Probably.
