Various agenda-driven agitators have been babbling about "running out of oil" since we discovered the liberation of inexpensive liquid high-yield fuel that is oil. And every year there is MORE, not less, known recoverable oil. This is an engineered crisis. Right now we have more recoverable oil in the United States than in the Arab sheihkdoms. It took a radical no-growth anti-prosperity government to make roughly half of it inaccessible through prohibiting drilling or recovery...even in such pristine, beautiful places as ANWR. Ever been to ANWR? Of course not. You couldn't go there if you wanted. THERE IS NOTHING THERE. It's an ARCTIC DESERT. We could test nuclear weapons there and never feel the effect of what desolation resulted. If we don't allow ourselves to recover oil THERE...then the only conclusion is, our leaders and decision-makers want us oil-starved. And it was oil that freed the common man. It gave him transportation; heated his home without the dirt and work of shoveling coal; it automated drudge tasks. There were a hundred men on the Titanic whose job was to SHOVEL COAL - today a cargo ship sails with a crew of about a dozen in all. What is being done; and what lies are being told about it, is nothing short of maniacal.
