Salazar, Limbaugh square off on shale
Salazar, interviewed later on 850 KOA, said that Limbaugh is "spreading falsehoods along with many of the people who want us to essentially give away the public lands of Colorado."

Colorado controls 80 percent of the oil shale reserves in the entire country, Salazar said. The technology to develop that shale does not yet exist, he said, and there are unanswered questions about how much water it will take, where it will come from, and how many coal-fire plants will need to be built to process the shale.

Moreover, Salazar said, the BLM has said it will be 2015 at the earliest before oil can be extracted from the shale.

"This is not about the development of oil shale today that will help us with gas prices," Salazar said "What this is about is trying to give millions of acres of land away to the oil companies so they can lock it up forever as part of their reserves."

2. "How do you extract oil from the shale," It requires lots and lots and lots of water
to cook rocks to extract the dirtiest form of oil that really isn't oil yet. I am referring to this article...
