I BELIEVE WE NEED A REMINDER OF THE FACTS…THE FAIRY TAILS ARE OUT OF CONTROL!
In 2005 the largest oil reserve IN THE WORLD was discovered…THE GREEN RIVER OIL RESERVE IN COLORADO. Pres Bush ordered 3000 test wells drilled by independent private contractors and announced, after all results were studied, that it turns out this is the largest oil reserve ever discovered and it is mostly on Government owned property and holds more oil than the rest of the world ! Since then 8,000 more test holes further substantiate the studies.
Here’s an excerpt from testimony about the Green River Formation that was provided by Anu K. Mittal, Government Accountability Office (GAO) Director of Natural Resources and Environment, to the House Subcommittee on Energy and Environment, Committee on Science, Space, and Technology :
“The Green River Formation…contains the world’s largest deposits of oil shale. USGS estimates that the Green River Formation contains about 3 trillion barrels of oil, and about half of this may be recoverable, depending on available technology and economic conditions. The Rand Corporation, a nonprofit research organization, estimates that 30 to 60 percent of the oil shale in the Green River Formation can be recovered. At the midpoint of this estimate, almost half of the 3 trillion barrels of oil would be recoverable. This is an amount about equal to the entire world’s proven oil reserves”.
The Green River is oil shale and although it is recoverable we need better and more efficient methods to economically recover the product, however there is no doubt that this will happen…if the government stops interfering with the companies that spend the research money, obtain permits that are cancelled, trying to produce the product, my opinion!
In 2020 Biden stopped all tests, drilling , everything on the Green River!
In 2008, the 2nd largest oil reserve in the world, was discovered in North Dakota. The Bakken formation covers many States including western North Dakota, northeastern Montana, and part of Canada. This reserve according to the USGS has an undetermined amount of natural gas as well!
Up to then, Prudhoe Bay WAS the largest oil reserve in the US…it’s now THIRD!
In December 2021, the USGS completed an oil and gas estimate for the Bakken and Three Forks Formations in the Williston Basin of Montana and North Dakota. The estimate includes 4.3 billion barrels of unconventional oil and 4.9 trillion cubic feet of unconventional natural gas in the two formations. In May 2020 the North Dakota Oil & Gas Division estimated over 7,500 oil and gas wells in North Dakota were shut down, preventing close to 510,000 barrels a day of production. The reason the Biden administration gave was Covid and not economically feasible!
When Biden closed the Keystone Pipeline he also closed others and natural gas power plants. Obama closed 45% of our coal plants. We are now at 80% of full capacity…or less!
NY Senator Kirsten Gillibrand said that nobody should care because the Keystone Pipeline “has not moved 10 cents worth of oil” since it started!
That is the epitome of her utter ignorance, and ability to expand on a subject she knows nothing about and has not researched and yet could and would vote NO to the Keystone, relying on her stupidity, my opinion!
Now folks, this is supposed to be someone who represents us, you and me and she has no idea what she’s talking about! She is ignorant of a major source of oil to these United States. From its opening in 2010 to 2019 the Keystone has delivered 1.3 BILLION barrels of oil to and through the 2,700 miles of Keystone Pipeline that traverse the US to Illinois to parts west. Parts 1 and 2 of the Keystone project were delivering over 510,000 of barrels a day when Biden/Obama stopped it cold. Part 3 was to expand to the west coast and refineries in the Gulf!
In total between all our resources that were stopped for whatever imaginary reasons, by those two scoundrels, Biden and Obama, I am sorry but there are no other words except traitors to describe them, they together drove our oil production from some 19 million barrels s a day under Trump to less than 9 million barrels a day!
THERE’S THE REASONS FOR ALL YOUR FINANCIAL TROUBLES, FOOD SHORTAGES, GAS PRICES, ALL THE SHORTAGES NOW AND SOON TO COME!!!
Additionally, Obama drained the oil emergency reserves from full to zero…Trump brought them from the Obama zero to 110% …Biden is bringing them back to Biden zero! Why? So that when they go for the take-over from Republic to Socialism, there is no standby to power anything! How long can you hold out, with no natural gas, no coal, no oil, no firewood (Hochul’s contribution to the Socialist cause), no gasoline, no diesel, no electric power (80% is still fossil fuel), no drinking water …no food?
Just answer this…why?
I am almost embarrassed to talk about this totally irrational Boogy Man scare tactic these scoundrel Democraps have laid upon you. I say “you” and not “us” because I am more afraid of the Boogy Man, a nonexistent child hood ghost that scares little kids, than the “imaginary” thing we can’t change, control, stop, or improve, or disprove. But here we go again:
First -the science approach…Define Climate Change…I’ll bet you can’t! If you can, leave a comment. When you think you can define “Climate Change”, explain how you can actually STOP what it is you just defined. For example; the left hung out the “Global Warming Shingle” for the Gore Decades …right up until they, Gore and his Gorites , decided there was no evidence, no proof so they made it up. Then they were caught. How ?
Time cures all lies, my opinion. Gore and the left relied upon the UN IPCC for all their evidence of Global Warming. Ironically, the “CC” in UN IPCC stands for Climate Change, yet you never heard “that”, it was always Global Warming until Gore and others said, “Based upon 18 years of our UN IPCC Model on Global Warming, we can now say the Earth is warming, the Ice Glaciers are melting, the Arctic and Antarctic Ice caps are melting and …oh yes, the Polar Bears are dying.
But the best of all was when Al Gore predicted that, “The Glaciers will be gone by 2015”. John Coleman, creator of the weather channel and dedicated Weather man took the “UN IPCC Model of 18 years” as did other scientists and compared what the model predicted to what the actual temperatures were. Guess what …there was no correlation whatsoever. NASA even said that the “UN IPCC Model” is useless at predicting anything!
Listen up…the Arctic lost 1 million square miles of ice from 2002 to 2012…but regained 1 million Sq Miles of ice from 2012 to 2013! We never heard that! Then scientists looked into how they actually measured the temperatures “Globally”. In the first place they did not! All the temperatures were taken in the US. Next, the UNIPCC forced the Colleges who wanted Grant Money, to sign a contract that they agreed that there is Global Warming and would try to prove it. The temperatures they took and recorded were taken at ground level, on blacktop parking lots, some protected by fence others not, some with a continuous recording “pen” register that self-record others not. Most students tending to the “tests” had no training.
John Coleman went to all States and Countries that had Polar Bears, and examined all their records on Polar Bear population back as far as they went and guess what. In all cases, Polar Bear populations INCREASED.
Now if that is not enough, there are no scientific tests anyplace that prove anything about Global warming however there are some very accurate studies that prove for example the Antarctic Ice land Mass is bigger, colder, thicker than it was 10, 000 years ago! Who did that test and when ? In 2015 the NASA did borings, carbon dated to 10,000 years ago and proved it…that’s when they said the IPCC model is useless!
Last thought, if the Earth was created 4.5 Billion years ago at some astronomical temperature…like say 30,000 degree F or whatever and 4.5 Billion years later there is a core of molten mass(which is true) about 5,000 miles in diameter (true) and it is still at 10,000 degrees F (also true), is the Earth cooling or warming? Hmmmmm???
CLIMATE CHANGE – My definition – Temperature, atmospheric, subterranean, volcanic, wind ,rain, snow, and other factors unknown to man that combine and cause weather…which can only be controlled by forces and beliefs beyond man’s control.Climate change has existed since the creation of planet Earth and has always been and will always be in continuous change, no matter what man does or doesn’t do!
CARBON DIOXIDE – This is the easiest of them all. CO2 is necessary for plant life to live and for the photosynthesis of oxygen, which you breathe! The ideal concentration for trees is 2000 PPM. The minimum trees need is 250 PPM and we currently have 450 PPM CO2 in the atmosphere. By forces unknown to science, excess CO2 falls into the Oceans.
According to Patrick Moore, founder of Green Peace, if your green house plants are dying, stick your car exhaust into the greenhouse overnight and run your engine. You won’t believe the results! Mr Moore also says we need to INCREASE CO2 to 2000 PPM!
There is absolutely no evidence whatsoever that methane, CO2, or other gases have any effect or if they do what is it. There’s as much evidence about gases as there is about what effect Bigfoot has on Climate Change!
Remember …if you send a comment on Climate Change first define it. Then what it is you believe you can do to help change it!
In my opinion…if it were not for Climate Change…we wouldn’t be here!
