On page 164 of The Greatest Hoax, Jim Inhofe explains that U.S. fossil fuel
reserves are the solution to U.S. energy security.

 

This statement is untrue based on his own inflated numbers. He says

 

US oil reserves of 163 billion barrels will, at current consumption of 6.85
BOE/yr, meet US needs for  50 years   

 

US nat. gas reserves of 2,047 trillion cubic feet (326 BOE) will, at current
consumption of 4.03 BOE/yr meet US needs for 90 years

 

US coal reserves of 262 billion short tons (900.5 BOE) will, at current
consumption of 3.45 BOE/yr meet US needs for 261 years.

 

Thus, US fossil fuels of 1,389.5 BOE (Barrel of Oil Equivalent) at current
consumption rate of 14.33 BOE per year will meet U.S. needs for 97 years.
Using Inhofe's own numbers, fossil fuels provide his grandchildren with a
very insecure energy future. 

 

Can anyone support Inhofe's premise that U.S. fossil fuel reserves are the
solution to U.S. energy security?
