    yeah, gots to get lots of electrical current to make those wires hot.....
    I like the idea of dropping a small nuclear bomb down the well to crack the shale....

    Facts? No. Theories. It will never be economically feasible or even possible to extract the amount of kerogen from oil shale to make up for any portion of our petroleum consumption. It takes huge amounts of energy just to extract if from the rock and then it still has to be refined. It would be easier and cheaper to liquify coal for fuel.
    Oil shale is not the answer to your prayers.

    Oil Shale Production Will Sap
    Electrical Power
    To produce oil shale on a scale that is economically viable, massive amounts of electrical power would be necessary—power that would most likely come from coal-fired plants that have been proven to
    cause health problems such as heart attacks and asthma and release dangerous global warming
    pollution into our air. To produce 200,000 barrels of oil a day, four typical coal generation plants would be
    needed.3 Boosters of oil shale often talk about extracting one million barrels of oil per day. At
    that rate, upwards of 20 coal-fired power plants would be required, burning more than 50 million
    tons of coal annually.

    Don't give the right wing extremists any ideas.

    Yes it DOES and what really T's me off is that floridians need JOBS so does the entire south and drilling here would create some jobs for americans and lessen our dependence on foriegn oil faster than any other option.

    The quickest option is the one that the president, the senate, the house are ALL afraid to propose.
    Raise taxes on transportation fuels enough to discourage us from wasting so much of it. We could cut enough overnight to give the Saudi Royal Family some serious pucker time. Without money coming in to placate the public, the royal family would have to dip into their own obscene wealth to keep the ordinary Saudi people from rising up and taking over the country.

    Read the article. Stop thinking your opinions are the only authority.

    So we can watch inflation rise with the transportation of goods?
