For every barrel of oil they extract there, they have to use enough natural gas to heat a family's home for four days, Mr. Gore told the magazine.
When does someone mention that this same barrel of oil would heat that family's home for a YEAR?
Small house you have there.
Don't overstate the case PD -- the 55 gallons of oil in a barrel may not heat for a year, but certainly a month is not unreasonable. Heck, even two weeks in a tough stretch of northeastern winter. You still end up with a net energy gain.
And the torn up landscape is a hoot. Once the heavy equipment goes away, an amazing thing happens to "torn up landscape". The plant fairies come in and put weeds, grasses, then bushes, and eventually trees in a process that I'm sure the Gorons out there would think of as the Gaia Goddess' magic.

Mr. Gore concluded that the United States must reduce its dependence on oil as the primary source of energy to save the planet from the devastating impact of global warming.
I just love this kind of crap. The US is so bad then why does he want to run it? How about India and China's burdon on the oil dependency? Answer that AlGore....
