I was sent some information in an email this morning that I think every American (democrats and republicans) should know. It's unreal that we put ourselves in these situations, then do nothing to change them. I don't know how anyone can argue this information.
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.
"This sizable find is now the highest-producing onshore oil field found in the past 56 years," the Pittsburgh Post Gazette reports. It's a formation known as the Williston Basin, but is more commonly referred to as the "Bakken." And it stretches from Northern Montana, through North Dakota and into Canada. For years, US 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. Did you read that correctly? NOT until the year 2041, but for over two-thousand years!
Stansberry Report Online - 4/20/2006
Hidden only 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 four years of high oil prices, not a drop 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 the US 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?
Now, all you environmentalists reading this are saying, "But we can't burn all this oil and ruin the Earth. We can't dig here because we need to save the wild life and the natural lands this would destroy."
I got news for you... We will be burning this oil anyway! We are just now paying other countries a LOT of money. We are helping their economy, not our own! We are sending jobs to them, not giving them to our own people who desperately need them. We are spending WAY too much at the pump instead of putting that money back into our economy for other products. Plus, how much extra oil are we burning just to transport all that oil from half-way around the world over to us? Wouldn't it be better on the environment just to get it here?
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. Don't you think OPEC just might be funding the environmentalists? Don't you think they might be stuffing some pockets in Washington? Don't you think that it's easier for them to make more money that way?
Got your attention yet? Hope so! Now, while you're thinking about it .... And hopefully P-O'd, click on the email a friend below this post. Pass this information on and let's start fighting to get our own economy going again! Let's fight to put jobs back in America again! Let's fight to be independent of other countries for their oil!
