Oil Found In Australia Puts US in Possible #1 Position in the world

chris tobin's insight:

EIN News link about new oil found in Australia that puts the US in a #1 oil position instead of the Arabs......fracking the area (like in Virginia) and also fracking with large amounts of money to do it are currently problems.

On The Plains, The Rush For Oil Has Changed Everything

On The Plains, The Rush For Oil Has Changed Everything | Chris' Regional Geography | Scoop.it
Black gold has brought big-money jobs and severe growing pains to once-sleepy North Dakota towns.

 

A remarkable transformation is underway in western North Dakota, where an oil boom is changing the state's fortunes and leaving once-sleepy towns bursting at the seams. In a series of stories, NPR is exploring the economic, social and environmental demands of this modern-day gold rush.

The state of North Dakota has been a very low population remote state until recently. Large influx of people into these towns is causing more problems than they can handle and may just destroy the state. Once the work opportunities run out everyone will leave, but by then all the current towns will have been changed, maybe to the point where they couldn't recover.
