Oh, Gee! There’s oil in the Rockies! We’re all saved…

oh, wait..

According to that article, what’s there is actually not oil, but oil shale, rock that yeilds oil when heated. You’ll be happy to know that heating a ton – literally – of this rock – will yeild 15 gallons of oil.

Anyone bored enough to figure out how much energy it takes to heat a ton of rock, and compare and contrast it with how much energy is in 15 gallons of oil?
