Needless shortages

From Powerline:
America has more fossil fuel resources than any other nation. Russia is second, Saudi Arabia is third. On Thursday, a representative of the Government Accountability Office testified before the House Science Subcommittee on Energy and Environment that the Green River Formation alone–it is located at the intersection of the states of Colorado, Utah and Wyoming, and mostly underlies federal lands–contains as much oil as the entire proven reserves of the rest of the world combined.
Not to mention all that shale gas in Britain and Poland plus the oil strike in the Falklands.  It looks as if trying to portray the current energy crisis as anything other than an artificial shortage engineered by Leftists for their own ends will be a much harder sell from now on.

A lesson that Germany is learning the hard way.

You neglect to mention the near infinite reserves of mushroom growing medium and snake oil, which, unfortunately, underlie Washington DC.
