In both our scenarios, harder-to-extract oil – from the deep ocean, remote areas such as the Arctic, and from oil sands – is needed to fill
the supply gap that opens up around 2015. Using our technology and skills to help deliver this difficult or frontier oil, and doing it in
environmentally responsible ways, is central to our business strategy.
from the shell website. Have you seen the new commercial where they say they are "ready to meet the challenge" (everyone loves a challenge, that
sounds a lot better than "last ditch effort") up to the challenge of drilling for "difficult" oil. A much better term for their purposes than
say, "exhausted resources". They also explain that this oil is "trapped" deep within the earth, and it's part of Shells responsibility to come
up with innovations to make this accessable to us. Hey, that oil is trapped, we better help it out of there! Why aren't they doing more innovating
on better energy options? This commercial made me fully realize that the idea of other energy options just will not ever get the deserverd attention
until this earth is tapped out of any other option. I wonder how people cannot notice this trend in how we are taken as complete idiots. I'll bet
that no one would accept the idea that rape is "difficult intercourse"; how is this any different???? someone help me understand how they continue
to get away with this so blatently, the commercial is horrible, i honestly thought it was a joke at first, that maybe i was watching Saturday Night
Live or MAD tv, i couldn't hardly believe it was real. It gets played a lot on the channels that a stereotypical ATSer watches...Discovery, TLC,
HISTORY. ect. tell me your thoughts on this folks.
And it would be GREAT if someone who was an ATS subject expert on oil or energy could comment, but alas i do not have any of them on my friend list
yet, there is a gal who is extremely educated on oil and energy here, but i forget her name, can someone help? I'd like to get an experts opinion on
