The US Has Only 2% Of The World's Oil Lie

I read this on Pundit & Pundette and it speaks for itself.

"We can't escape the fact that we control only 2% of the world's oil." This is a common refrain among anti-drilling Democrats and environmentalists, and it's repeated enough that many people accept it as true. In reality, it's 100% false. The number comes from a highly conservative estimate from the Energy Information Administration totaling America's proven reserves where we are already drilling. It does not include the 10 billion barrels available in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. It does not include most of the 86 billion barrels available offshore in the Outer Continental Shelf, most of which President Obama has placed under an executive drilling ban. And it does not include the 800 billion barrels of oil we have locked in shale in Wyoming, Utah, and Colorado. Those shale resources alone are actually three times larger than the proven reserves of Saudi Arabia, so the claim that the U.S. only has 2% of the world's oil is clearly false.

Is there anything he can't do? It was quite humorous that Obama refused to use his name in a press conference...

Chicken Littles Already Blaming Japan's Earthquake On Climate Change

Yep, like doggies with a bone these people will not let anything shake their belief that puny men are killing mother eath.

Some Respond To Japanese Earthquake By Pointing To Global Warming

“Some islands affected by climate change have been hit,” said Nilsson. “Has not the time come to demonstrate on solidarity — not least solidarity in combating and adapting to climate change and global warming?”
“Mother Nature has again given us a sign that that is what we need to do,” he added.

Hey Joe, Mother Nature calling collect. Oy vey...
