Well... maybe not?

It's on the wikipedia page for oil reserves.

Why in the world would you argue something like this?
I admit that I don't always believe wiki 100%, but this stuff seems fairly cut and dried.

The article in that link is from Feb 13, 2008.

I hope it's true, just wondering why it wasn't included in the wiki stuff.

I thought they were just TALKING about an agreement with the Cuban govt. Are they actually drilling now? Wouldn't this have made headlines? I suppose I could have missed it.

There is a pretty good chunk of oil there and the way it works Cuba being 90 miles from marathon that puts the border and drilling 45 miles off our shore.

I have no idea why a completely public document like this http://www.usgs.gov/newsroom/article.asp?ID=1911, was not used as a reference point. At any rate, a simple slip of a decimal point or two.

I do remember those emails about the Bakken oil though. Some even went so far as to reference sites that totally refuted their headlines.
