U S Energy Self Sufficiency SPEE 2016 REVISED
The following is a link to my presentation that I am prepared to give to various clubs and organizations.
For those wishing to see the figure referenced in my June 8, 2016 comment on Art Berman’s web site click on the link and go to Figure 23. While you are here you might look at my :
U S Energy Self Sufficiency SPEE 2016 REVISED
The video was a talk he gave to the Probers Sunday School Class March 13, 2016 at Memorial Drive United Methodist Church, Houston, Texas. All people interested in this subject should view this video on You Tube with this special link.
This video includes a special message to the 1000 delegates that will be attending the 2016 General Conference of the United Methodist Church but should be heard by all across this great country of ours. It is 42 minutes long but loaded with good facts.
I recently received a copy of a letter from the Methodist Church and Society Committee started off showing a picture of cyclone damage in the Philippines. I wonder why they did not show a picture of the destruction of the Galveston hurricane before in the early 1900′s where 1000′s died. A review of our weather history shows no change in weather patterns as Dr. Frank will discuss, before or after the CO2 started to increase.
For those that want more time to review the slides. Just go to my web site again,
and look at the previous news blog. There is a slide show with essentially the same charts that I developed from Dr. Franks three talks at Memorial Drive Methodist Church, Houston, Texas
Dr. Neal Frank urges Methodist delegates to the 2016 General Convention to pass both of Lou Powers petitions to remove the seven Paragraphs from the Discipline and the Book of Resolutions related to CO2 and Global Warming/Climate Change.
The basis for his recommendation is that this subject is political and not a religious issue and the science for CO2 causing Global Warming/Climate Change is non-existant or weak at best.
Please take a look at a slide show that Dr. Frank presented to three groups at Memorial Drive United Methodist Church, Houston, Texas, supporting his views.

Dr. Neil Frank’s presentation to the MDUMC Probers Sunday School Class was made today, March 13, 2016. It was video taped and should be available for publication on this Web Site by Easter so please mark it on your calendar to revisit, http://TheWorldEnergyDilemma.com
March 28, 2016 Sorry to report I do not yet have access to the edited video yet. When it is available I will notify the Bishops and Delegates to the 2016 General Convention of the Methodists as I have communicated in the past.
Sorry for the delay. Lou Powers
The answer is YES according to Vijay Jayaraj a resident of India. Mr. Jayaraj(M. S. Environmental Science)is a Research Associate for Developing Countries for the Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation. Please read his article by going to the following link:
What he concludes is without cheaper, oil, and natural gas are critical to the economies of emerging countries. The science of global warming caused by using fossil fuels is far from settled. While CO2 has increased each year over the last 18 years according to satellite data the temperature has not.
Noted Climate Expert Dr. Neil Frank speaks out against climate alarmist with the facts about CO2 and Global Warming. Dr. Frank was the longest serving Directors of the National Hurricane Center 1974-1987 and retired Chief Meteorologist of KHOU-TV for 20 years. Here is the link:
Former co-founder of Green Peace Patrick Moore speaks out on “What They Haven’t Told You About Climate Change,” referring to those that support Global Warming now called Climate Change caused by CO2 coming from fossil fuels.

“What They Haven’t Told You About Climate Change”
Today I want to reflect on the state of the U. S. Oil Industry and point you to an excellent writing of Art Berman in his article he wrote with title above.
First let reflect on some of my own experience over time.
Back in 1978 I was the Chief Petroleum Engineer for Aramco there was considerable frustration in the World as the Saudi’s decided to cut back their planned capacity buildup from 16 to only 10 million Bbls/day. The world did not listen, the EIA and the USA continued to plan in their annual reports that the Saudi’s would be producing 15 to 20 million Bbls/day in future years. These projections are shown on Figure 9-4 in my book “The World Energy Dilemma” published by PennWell in 2012 That was over 37 years ago when the Oil minister for Saudi Arabia Sheik Yamani said someday our Grand Children will need this oil too. Today Saudi Aramco is producing just over 10 million Bbls/day, some 37 years later
At about the time these discussions were going on in Saudi Arabia my wife brought home a small book from the Aramco library entitled “Small is Beautiful” by E F Schumacher. It had a great Chapter on forecasting the future. I remember two real important statements: 1. “The world will appreciate most who say Stop, Look and Listen rather than those who say Look it up in the Forecast.” and 2. “Remember you can not forecast the future because you do not know what is the minds of those that control it”, but you should explore it. How true today when it comes to oil price forecasting.
With this in mind please reflect on Art Berman’s writing entitled “The Crude Oil Export Ban–What Me Worry about Peak Oil About Peak Oil?
Back in the Spring of 2014, before the Oil Price Collapse I spoke to the San Antonio Library Foundation about a possible oil supply shortfall within the next ten years based on my understanding of future supply and demand for world oil. I am sure their were skeptics. Now that the oil price has severely dropped I can just about guarantee that will happen before ten years is up. As Schumacher says, I just can not tell you when.
I can say keep your eye on Saudi Arabia, for either internal or external derived problems.
Hear Mike van Biezen, adjunct professor at Compton College, Santa Monica College, El Camino College, and Loyola Marymount University teaching Physics, Mathematics, Astronomy, and Earth Science has to say about Global Warming caused by CO2.
