On Sunday I read a rant about oil shale on a midwest blog (Sorry, I don't have the link). The author said that he was, "sick of the Left," blocking energy projects. He mentioned the estimated trillions of barrels of oil locked up in oil shale in Colorado, Utah and Wyoming. As I read his post I quickly understood that he thought that oil shale technology was far enough along that the nation is being denied its benefits both for lower energy prices and independence from foreign oil.
In case there are other readers out there that are thinking along similar lines I feel compelled to let you know what I know about the current situation."
