Well there's good news folks, I was watching CBS news tonight and found out that there's at least trillions of barrels of oil in Western Colorado.
This may take a while since all this oil is found in the mountains and Shell states it wil take about 4 years of research here before it will know if it has the answer. There is no dispute that a thousand feet below the isolated ranch country here on Colorado's western slope lie almost unimaginable oil riches. It's locked in sedimentary rock — essentially immature oil that given a few million years under heat and pressure would produce pools of oil easy to extract.
The Energy Department and private industry estimate that a trillion barrels are here in Colorado — about the same amount as the entire world's known reserves of conventional oil.
The entire Green River Formation might hold as much as 2 trillion barrels.
This new discovery of oil shale holds out the hope of a USA no longer dependent on foreign oil.
Maybe we can get our troops back out in the Middle East.
