2018/10/25: A report released earlier this year by HSBC predicted that Texas is on track to outpace the oil production of both Iran and Iraq by 2019. Texas is home to two rather massive oil fields, and behind Russia and Saudi Arabia, it’s the number three oil producer in the world. The shale oil boom has contributed greatly to that, making the Permian Basin a hotbed of production.
The shale oil development and growth in Texas has been defined as reshaping the world’s energy landscape. The result is the pumping of more oil out of the U.S., making the country less reliant on imports from the Middle East. According to reports, the combined output of the Permian and Eagle Ford (the south Texas oil field) is expected to be 5.6 million barrels per day in 2019. That will see the Lone Star State producing over half of America’s entire oil production. In comparison, Iraq is producing 4.8 million barrels per day while Iran is on track for 3 million a day.

The Texas Republican Party has published its 2012 platform online and scanning through it, it appears to be gleeful manifesto of pig ignorance and backwards, country bumpkin fear of progress in any form. Whatever it is, they're agin it! It contains the following sentence which is going to see them mocked mercilessly for the next week or so: We oppose the teaching of Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) (values clarification), critical thinking skills and similar programs that are simply a relabeling of Outcome-Based Education (OBE) (mastery learning) which focus on behavior modification and have the purpose of challenging the...
