Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Here in Utah we've been waiting since, oh, about the Bare-Fang Era for oil shale to become economically viable.  Every time the price of oil seems to go up enough, the cost of production goes up just that much more.  I've watched this cycle play out four or five times, and each time the folks who've bet on oil shale have lost their shirts, their shorts, and everything else.  I figure someone will discover the breakthrough that makes oil shale economical the same day someone else builds a desktop cold fusion reactor.
