Animal foods also require immense quantities of petroleum to produce. For example, while it takes only two calories of fossil fuel (nitrogen fertilizers) to produce one calorie of protein from soybeans, and three calories for wheat and corn, it takes fifty-four calories of petroleum to produce one calorie of protein from beef! Animal agriculture contributes disproportionately to our consumption of petroleum and thus to air and water pollution, global warming, and the wars driven by conflict over dwindling petroleum reserves. How is it possible that it could take twenty-seven times as much petroleum to supply people with hamburgers as it does to provide soy burgers, and what are the implications of this?

Oil and gas drilling activity has picked up slowly in Southeastern Texas, but not as rapidly as in other parts of the states.
The most activity has been seen in Denton County, where Ameratex are drilling for natural gas.
The International Energy Agency estimates technically recoverable shale gas resources of about 208 trillion cubic meters, or 7.3 quadrillion cubic feet. Meanwhile, the same agency estimates the natural gas production will increase from 3,276 billion cubic meters to some 5,112 billion cubic meters by 2035, as techniques like fracking become more common.
Fuel injection is a system for admitting fuel into an internal combustion engine. It has become the primary fuel delivery system used in automotive engines, having replaced carburetors during the 1980s and 1990s. A variety of injection systems have existed since the earliest usage of the internal combustion engine. The primary difference between carburetors and fuel injection is that fuel injection atomizes the fuel by forcibly pumping it through a small nozzle under high pressure, while a carburetor relies on suction created by intake air rushing through a Venturi tube to draw the fuel into the air stream. Modern fuel injection systems are designed specifically for the type of fuel being used. Some systems are designed for multiple grades of fuel (using sensors to adapt the tuning for the fuel currently used). Most fuel injection systems are for ameratex energy gasoline or diesel applications.
