Inhofe, Murkowski Release Memo Showing U.S. Is World Leader in Conventional Fuels
Link to CRS Report
Washington, D.C.-Sen. James M. Inhofe (R-Okla.), Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, and Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Ranking Member of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, released a preliminary government report today showing America's combined recoverable natural gas, oil, and coal endowment is the largest on Earth. America's recoverable resources, Congressional Research Service (CRS) shows, are far larger than those of Saudi Arabia (3rd), China (4th), and Canada (6th) combined. And that's without including America's absolutely immense oil shale and methane hydrates deposits.Comment: With all this available energy you have to wonder why the Senate is pushing for the cap and trade and the move to green technologies that will not amount to powering an electric scooter much less a small town. You have to wonder why China is building new coal burning plants and a huge new manufacturing industry while our EPA continues to block the building of any fossil fuel plants and at the same time our manufacturing industry has long since dissolved or gone to China.
I have said it before, the pack of 100 are mostly beholden to special interest, and as we are seeing this is not a special interest that resides in the United States. At the rate we are going with the defict, government spending, war, and the loss of all manufacturing we should be in the 'developing nation class' before 2025.
