ANWR: Miles O'Brien just said how much oil is there on CNN

HOPEFULLY, people will hear what Miles O'Brien just said on CNN. He did the math and showed that there is only 3 months to 2 years worth of oil in ANWR by calculating the low-end estimate to the high-end estimate divided by the U.S. yearly consumption rate. He also reiterated that it would take 10 years to get ANWR oil into production. I think this amount would be better left saved for military needs for the future.

I also heard today that OPEC was calling a meeting with producers and consumers today. I'm interested in what's going on here.

That's all I wanted to say.

oh--p.s.--I think I would like Gov. Brian Schweitzer for Obama's VP. He has some interesting ideas for energy independence. You can see him here in this interview with Charlie Rose. I hope Obama chooses him. He's not totally perfect from a peak oil perspective but I think he might be the closest we can get right now. Go ahead and watch.

Miles got this one so wrong...on wonders about the agenday.

Nobody knows how much oil and nat gas is in ANWR.

Most geologists agree that the potential is on the order of billions of barrels of recoverable oil and trillions of cubic feet of recoverable gas and that these resources may rival or exceed the initial reserves at Prudhoe Bay.

Miles is too smart to have made such an unimaginable leap in logic.

Miles used the extremist analysis to support his political objectives. That is Minimum projected reserve divided by total annual US oil consumption - ans. 3Mos. How about using the mean projected reserve divided by the projected shortfall of 1 Mil Barrels/Day Ans. 30Yrs. That is assuming no advancement in recovery technology or in usage demand management. Miles is a dangerous political hack whom portends a technology knowledge to disguise is motives
