An excellent MP3 audio documentary from Pacifica KPFA radio on oil depletion was broadcast recently. I did not realize that Bosnia had a recent oil find. Not super big but interesting that the oil companies did have knowledge that some oil was there that predated the 1990's Yugoslavian conflicts.

Also, reporter Kellia Ramares makes the point that the manpower equivalency of oil amounts to $40,000 per barrel in labor costs.

On the visual side, the film documentary Oil on Ice was promoted on Air America's EcoTalk program.
At the present rate of usage, the total projected reserves beneath the potentially exploitable "1002 area" of the (ANWR) Refuge's coastal plain is estimated at a few billion barrels of oil--a reserve that would support the nation's oil habit for 200 days
