Actualy there are equivalent oil and gas deposits in SE Asia and Antartica.
But they doesn't belong to the USG either.

Of course the point is valid. Though it almost begs the question of why in
such a situation there is not a more powerful search for alternatives. There
are actualy very few technologies that care whether oil or gas is used in
energy production or some entirely different process.


          What raises the standard of living may well diminish the
          quality of life.
