I did a bit of further reading into McCain's comments about Our Dangerous Dependence on Foreign Oil.
I wanted to see just who, when we decided to drill the Conti Shelf we were going to rub sand in their faces.
Turns out, of the Top 10 countries that we import oil from, which account for 89% of our black gold...Yes, dammit OUR Black Gold!!! only three are in the Middle East. And not even Number 1. They are Numbers 2, 6 and 10.
Looks like that country that we are really going to kick in the nuts on this one is our old arch enemy from the North. Yep, damned Canadians.
So, be awed, be shocked, be confused, look at the pretty charts. Extrapolate trends. Try to afix political motives or innuendo to the various numbers. Cringe at misconceptions. Understand in awe why FTL is as he is as he has to look at this crap 8 hours a day.
Think of this as the piñata of energy information. All brought to you by your American Government...so it has to be good.
