Geopolitics of Shale Oil & Gas

The article excerpted linked below discusses the geopolitics of shale oil and gas, a topic Collaborative Construction has been following closely for several years now.

The United States, it turns out, has vast deposits of shale gas: in Texas, Louisiana, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York and elsewhere. America, regardless of many of the political choices it makes, is poised to be an energy giant of the 21st century. In particular, the Gulf Coast, centered on Texas and Louisiana, has embarked upon a shale gas and tight oil boom. That development will make the Caribbean an economic focal point of the Western Hemisphere, encouraged further by the 2014 widening of the Panama Canal. At the same time, cooperation between Texas and adjacent Mexico will intensify, as Mexico increasingly becomes a market for shale gas, with its own exploited shale basins near its northern border.

Once we get past the petty and pathetic politics of "Global Warming" and focus on how to leverage our own natural resources the US and her Allies are going to be very well positioned.  Long chain hydrocarbons, like the one represented graphically above, can be utilized for far more than just energy.  Let's expand our minds, expand our options and get to work!
