    You can't see it because it hasn't been invented yet. What stops it all is a more abundant, cheap clean energy source like we're sort of on the way to developing, as long as the fossil fuel industry doesn't kill that off.

    Any President using the terms "clean coal" is a threat to cleaner energy technology, by default. The term is a bastardization by Las Vegas ad men.

    Shale Oil and gas, gentlemen. We've perhaps spoken of it before.
    The renaissance of the American petroleum industry.

    Seriously, this is the USA alone, and the assessment is ongoing. I'm assuming this is a "mean" assessment, as I didn't mouse around long enough to delve into P10, P90 type numbers.

    It's beyond YUGE, BIGGLY. And that is US potential and current production. The same sort of plays exist around the world. It's just that in less mature areas, the conventional oil and gas reserves are still huge, with huge potential. The unconventional stuff is just waiting in the wings around the world.

    What will it take to stop the juggernaut of inexpensive and widely available crude oil and natural gas ?

    Oh, and then there are gas hydrates/clathrates, themselves a potential catastrophic source of methane into the atmosphere, due to human-caused global warming.

    The USGS Assessments are not even up to date for all provinces..

    Oh, and did I mention world-wide ?

    You seem almost happy about this.
