    Climate change will not bring about our end, but this will--

    The world’s climate has been changing since the beginning of time; this is NOT our impeding threat !!

    Fossil fuels are “finite” and known oil reserves will be sucked up and burned within the text 15-20 years!!

    This is “the” crises facing us, not climate but our energy needs.

    Will we make the transition in a smooth way or one tragedy piled up on another?

    How long will fossil fuels last?
    It is argued that oil will run out in 53 years, natural gas in 54, and coal in 110. How likely is it?

    With technological advances, reserves that were previously deemed unviable to tap have kept coming on board. Various studies show that the total remaining recoverable oil resources would last 190 years, natural gas 230 years, and coal, a whopping 2900 years.



    Oil shale

    Oil shale is a type of sedimentary rock that is rich in kerogen. Kerogen is a part of rock that breaks down and releases hydrocarbons when heated. Hydrocarbons are substances made entirely of hydrogen and carbon. Petroleum and natural gas are probably the most familiar hydrocarbons. The hydrocarbons in oil shale can be used as an alternative to petroleum or natural gas.

    A sedimentary rock, oil shale is found all over the world, including China, Israel, and Russia. The United States, however, has the most shale resources.
    Spanning the U.S. states of Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming, the Green River formation is an underground oil shale formation that contains as much as 1.8 trillion barrels of shale oil. Although not all of this can be extracted, it is more than three times the proven petroleum reserves of Saudi Arabia.

    The process of extracting shale oil is expensive, much more expensive than the process of extracting crude oil. Due to this expense, the use of shale oil in the U.S. has fluctuated depending on the price of crude oil. Companies have only mined for oil shale when the price of crude oil is high. Today, the price of oil is relatively high and extraction technology is becoming more efficient and less expensive. The possibility of mining oil shale has again become a possibility.

    Would certainly get rid of that unsightly trash heap on the Illinois side of St. Louis on I-70 that blocks most of the view of the Gateway Arch...
