    ...the shale oil "boom" is just that, a latter-day tulip boom: decay rates of extracted fluids are said to be extremely fast - which makes sense given the nature of the storage - and that the current hype is as much a means to extract capital from unwary investors as reality.
    It is all about money in the pockets of people who do not care that this is so horribly destructive.

    More of this will only serve to increase the speed at which we heat up the planet...
