#peakoil Net-energy (EROEI), Peak Oil denial & Oil Shale hype: Americans ought to stop complaining about the sup...

New oil drilling is mostly in deepwater locations, remaining Alaskan fields and low-EROEI “wet” shale that can be fracked (e.g. the Bakken Formation). Dry kerogen shale has much poorer net-energy than wet shale, since it must be cooked to release the oil. And it’s largely dry shale that people hype as “trillions of barrels” and the key to energy independence. They refuse to do the math of energy input vs. output, so they overstate recoverable shale oil by well over 90%.
