Spreading the Stupid #003

In its never ceasing quest to make the rest of the world near as stupid Karma Police recent intoned:

Of course OPEC is winning.
Did you think that they didn't know that the entire shale "revolution" was built on overvalued debt and 50 year old technology?

Correct me if I am wrong but GPS, earth penetrating radar, supercomputing, 3d visualization, gravimetric satellites and the like are a bit newer than circa 1964.

Speaking of which, where's my flying car?

My recollection is that much of the technology for extracting shale oil and ultra thick oil first started getting serious consideration in the early '80s, but it wasn't until recently that the advances in that technology became practical and prices justified the cost.

There hasn't been any improvement in anything they just raise the prices! LOL!

Dawg, you can place your order for a flying car with Moeller next time you visit Davis.
