Shale oil has rapidly boosted oil production in the US, presaging a revolution in oil to mirror that in gas production

Although economically this may be good for emerging countries, overall it is going to speed up the advent of climate-change and it won't matter who has oil or not because we will be struggling just to stay alive, let alone use any of these destructive fossil fuel resources. Mankind's genius will ultimately be his downfall. Thanks JL.

Developing Nations == "emerging and developing economies ... led in the last few years by the so-called BRICS
countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) and Saudi Arabia"
Industrialised World == OECD

probably the main reason Obama and his fracking czar Moniz have their crazy ambitions to frack the entire country to meet domestic AND foreign demands..

So until people give up their vehicles & heat in the winter. The demand for oil will always be. I for 1 love my car & want heat in winter. Global warming lol

The countries being discussed have very few cars and may not have winter heat so the prior comment does not relate to this article at all.

First nations long ago learned about sustainable environment. The theory being espoused now is that many First Nations settlements and empires fell into decline to overpopulation which required more and more resources. These were empires and settlements that rivaled anything in Europe and in one or two instances were older than European settlements.
Their engineering and land management achievements are second to none in the world including ancient China. Their problem was as populations grew so did the need for resources which caused them to deforest and overuse the water supply. Let us learn from them this lesson. They were just as human and fallible and corrupt or as enlightened and beneficent as any one of us in the world. The lesson is the same as it ever was just as the solution is.
