Dream land. Let's get back to reality.
It is not a sure thing of course but the natural gas boom is a fact, and its only getting better so far.
It is certainly not the material of 'Dreamland' coming from citibank.
anymore than the concept of battlefield viable railguns and lasers coming from the DoD in anycase.
Forget about North America becoming the new Middle-East , Just hope that Middle east doesn't become American property !!!
Projections are that in 2012 US may become nett exporter of petroleum products.
As the price of crude oil is rising, many of the oil fields which were technically challenging are becoming economically viable. Recently there was TIME magazine front page report in Extreme oil.
Some of the new sources oil are tight oil, shale oil, oil sands oil, Arctic oil, deep sea salt oil etc which can deliver 100's of billions of barrels of oil. These new sources of oil will be viable as long as the oil prices stay above $100 a barrel, but they are very unfriendly to the environment compared with the conventional sources of oil. Also, technological advancements is making it possible to tap into oil sources previously thought not possible. All this is bringing new sources of oil into the global market and making the world less dependent on middle-eastern oil. The middle-eastern oil wells will start drying up in next 2-3 decades, and its quite possible that the Arabs will go back to riding camels within next 4-5 decades.
United States was the Saudi Arabia of the World Pre-WW2.
The Pearl Harbor Bombing was done because US stopped exporting petroleum and oil to Japan, US accounted like 80% of Japan's Petroleum Supplier.
