The future of oil is the focus of this week’s episode on the McCuistion Program. As recent as 2005, oil experts claimed we had an oil crisis, oil had peaked and we would soon be running out of oil.
Joining host, Dennis McCuistion, are energy and oil experts:

  • Bruce Cutright: Research Scientist Association, Bureau of Economic Geology, University of Texas at Austin
  • Edward W. Blessing: Managing Director of Blessing Petroleum
  • Jacki Pick: Executive VP/COO National Center for Policy Analysis and Host of the Jacki Daily Show

Commenting through previously taped programs are:

  • David Yergin: Author of The Quest
  • Charles D. Davidson, Chairman/ CEO of Noble Energy

Our experts tell us that while we would need a crystal ball to predict the future of oil, oil is here to stay, it has a future, and there is, at least for the present, no substitute.

What we do know is there is at least four times an availability of oil reserves than what has been used in the past. The Artic is just recently in development. There are huge developments in offshore Brazil producing oil from formations 30,000 feet deep. New formations are being found off shore in West Africa, and we have the same availabilities off shore in the eastern part of the United States.

Left to Right: Bruce Cutright, Jacki Pick & Edward W. Blessing

According to Bruce Cutright, “Political issues are limiting our reserves. It’s not the reserves themselves that are limited.” Drilling off shore is more productive and profitable in the long term and our resources are unquantified for the present time.

Political issues are in fact restricting exploration. Pipelines pose yet another political challenge. While pipelines are the safest way of transporting oil, reducing accidents by 50% and are more environmentally friendly than other transportation, some environmentalists balk at adding to our already 2 million miles plus of existing pipeline.

New technologies are increasing our abilities to explore and drill for oil. Today we have a 100 year supply of natural gas; tremendous assets are right under our feet. Yet obtaining funds for exploration and drilling is problematic when oil prices are down as they are presently. Energy security is critical. And we’re forming stronger partnerships with Mexico and Canada.

The bottom line is energy is a life/death situation. We must have reliable and affordable energy. And there is no present substitute for fossil fuel.

The future looks rosy if….! We have reserves and we have the technology. But it is critical that politics and economics catch up with our capabilities.

Join us for a colorful discussion of the future of oil and how it impacts you.

Oil history has seen changes since 1990. Join us for part two in a three part series

Since the mid 1880’s “experts” have warned we are running out of oil. With  peak oil  always right around the corner, the U.S. government, from time to time  has imposed strict restrictions on exporting.

Joining host, Dennis McCuistion, to talk about oil history and the saga from 1990-2015 are guests:

  • Barry F. Crossman: Adjunct Professor at the University of Texas at Dallas, former Senior Executive at Caltex (retired).
  • Edward W. Blessing: Managing Director, Blessing Petroleum.

Left to Right: Barry F. Crossman and Edward W. Blessing

According to Jeffrey J. Brown, independent petroleum geologist, who joined  in via a previously taped program, Texas supposedly peaked in 1972 with Texas oil production steadily falling for the last 33 years.

Yet Scott Nauman, formerly with the Economics & Energy Division, Corporate Planning Department, Exxon Mobil Corporation, who also joins us from a previous program, says everything related to oil production has changed as a result of technology.

Our experts tell us that technology has taught us that each time we estimate the world’s recoverable resources, they are even bigger than originally thought. Today we can drill oil from 4,000 feet of water (West Africa) and drill wells that go underground horizontally six miles and find their target.

Technology also includes fracking, which forces fluids down under the shale and helps release natural gasses. Yet fracking is much maligned. According to Edward W. Blessing, more of the risk may actually be above ground from politics, government intervention and wars. He asks: “What made fracking a dirty word?”

Daniel Yergin, author of The Quest, who joins us by video from a prior program, says that growth in demand is especially critical to the future of oil. Emerging countries demand and use more oil and this is one of the reasons for “oil anxiety”. In the last 9 months, decreasing oil prices per barrel make financing more difficult. Still, as we hear from Barry Crossman, the resource is there to use at a future time when prices go up.

We hear from the late Matt Simmons, author of Twilight in the Desert, Amory Lovins, Chairman of the Rocky Mountain Institute and Ed Wallace, Host of KLIF’s Wheels about the continuing oil saga, our competition, Russia and Iran and the changes and dangers they throw into the mix.

The conclusion, we have the resources which give us and will continue to give us new capacities. Join us for a colorful story and intriguing insights on oil and its impact on how we live.

History of Oil: Part One in a Three Part Series
Left to Right: David Drumm, Bruce Cutright & Barry F. Crossman

Joining host, Dennis McCuistion, to talk about our rich history of oil and how it has changed how we live, are key experts on this topic:

  • David G. Drumm: Oil and Gas Attorney, Carrington, Coleman, Sloman, & Blumenthal, L.L.P and Chairman of the Board of the Hatton W. Sumners Foundation,
  • Barry F. Crossman: Adjunct Professor of International Business, University of Texas at Dallas, Senior Executive with Caltex ( retired), and
  • Bruce Cutright: Research Scientist Associate at the Bureau of Economic Geology at the University of Texas at Austin

For most of the 19th and 20th century, the U.S. was the largest oil producer in the world in an industry fraught from the very beginning with booms and busts as well as tremendous investment opportunity and technological advances. The history of oil began with the oil discovery in the U.S. is first credited to the Oil Creek site near Titusville, Pennsylvania in 1859, named after “Colonel” Edwin Drake, the man responsible for the well. The Drake Well began an international search for petroleum, and attracted the first investments in oil drilling, refining and marketing.

If video doesn’t play correctly, open it here.

By 1906 there were over 1500 oil companies in the U.S. Today only four to five still exist. In 1926 the U.S. was producing 70% of the oil in the world. In 1950 the world was consuming 10.4 million barrels a day, with the U.S. producing 5.4 million barrels of that. In 1970 the world was producing 44.9 million barrels a day with the U.S. producing 9.6 million barrels. In 1990 the world was producing 60.6 million barrels a day with the U.S. down to 7.4 million barrels.

Audience Guests: Nancy Crossman and Anna Clark

Our experts on the history of oil take us from Baku, Azerbaijan in 1846 to Spindletop, Texas in 1901, the formation of OPEC in 1960, the 1973 and 1979 gas lines and the collapse of oil prices in 1986, until today and the current oil price challenges and major transformations in the industry. Today, technology allows us to take our proven reserves and increase it by a factor of ten.

Guests discussing the history of oil from previously taped programs include:

  • Dr. Rilwanu Lukman: Former Secretary General, Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, who says, OPEC is not a true cartel; and
  • Daniel Yergin: Author of The Quest, who tells us that as early as the mid 1880’s people were concerned we were running out of oil.

Join us for a rich perspective (no pun intended) on the colorful history of oil.

2219 -06.21.15

In September of 2005,  Jyllands-Posten, published 12 cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad; which brought on riots and deaths. Many accused him of deliberate incitement and blasphemy.

Left to Right: Niki McCuistion, Flemming Rose and Dennis McCuistion

Flemming Rose, Foreign Editor of Jyllands-Posten; author of Tyranny of Silence; joins us to talk about, how one cartoon ignited the global debate on the issue of free speech.According to Rose, the decision to publish the cartoons was as a result of a debate on censorship which involved museums, publishing houses and newspapers. It started when a children’s writer was writing a book about the life of the Prophet Muhammad and needed illustrations.

Three illustrators refused to do so, one accepted, but wanted anonymity. This started a debate in Denmark about  encouraging self- censorship when it comes to Islam. Rose says, “We discovered that, yes, there is self- censorship and the fear is great. People are killed over this in the public debate of blasphemy and art. We decided to approach others to draw cartoons of the Prophet to find out if there is censorship or not”.

Rose invited members of Denmark’s Cartoonist Society to participate; half did. He was quoted as saying,

“Modern secular society is rejected by some Muslims. They demand a special position insisting on certain considerations of their religious feelings. It’s incompatible with contemporary democracy and freedom of speech; where we must be ready to put up with insult and mockery and sometimes ridicule. It’s certainly not always attractive and nice to look at.

It does not mean that religious feeling should be made fun of at any price but that this is a matter of importance in the present context. We’re on our way to a slippery slope where no one can tell how self -censorship will end. That is why our newspaper  invited members of the Danish Cartoonists Society to draw Muhammad as they see him.”

The cartoons were published; and it was a non-event. Several months later things exploded. Huge demonstrations and violence erupted  in the Middle East. In Denmark a lot of Danish Muslims demanded an apology. Rose says,

“A group of Imams, acting on their own,  presented themselves as spokespeople for all the Danish Muslims. When they couldn’t get a law passed criminalizing what was published, they took us to court but couldn’t get it refuted. They could not get an apology or a new blasphemy law. So they lost the case in Denmark and then took it to Imams in the Middle East, Egypt, Syria  and Lebanon, to raise opinions in the Muslim world, and they succeeded.”

The cartoons became a lightning rod. Rose says, “I cannot exercise my profession without freedom of the Press. My safety? I will always have a security problem for the rest of my life. I’m in the top 10 Al Qaida hit list. The Danish producer was killed so now there are 9 of us”.

Rose travels debating these issues and has arrived at the conclusion that this is a global issue and a growing problem. He wrote his book Tyranny of Silence, to explain his decisions and offer a perspective on free speech and censorship.


If video doesn’t play correctly, open it here.

He is deeply concerned as it relates to censorship,

“We are moving in the wrong direction. Here in the U.S. you have the 1st amendment which is the best protection in the world on freedom of expression. But, you are becoming more and more isolated. When it comes to protection of freedom of speech in law, in other parts of the world there are more laws criminalizing more and more freedoms of speech … People are limiting themselves because they are afraid of saying the wrong things that might be perceived as offensive by other people.

The more diverse we are as a society, the ways people will express themselves are more diverse. We need more freedom of speech not less… What has changed the world is our communication technology, the digital technology. Everything is published all over the place. You don’t have borders and at the same time you have migration. People are moving across borders in numbers never seen before in the history of mankind.

And these two factors frame the debate about free speech. So the issue is how are we going to safeguard free speech in societies that are getting more and more diverse when it comes to culture, ethnicity and religion?”

Rose is not alone in thinking freedom of speech is in danger. Tune into this sensitive topic to see how freedoms are being eroded and the danger that poses to us all.

2218 – 05.24.15

Join us as we discuss free market and economic progress.

In 2011, then to be Senator Elizabeth Warren made a speech that has since been made famous by President Obama, that said the help and infrastructure of most of this country was built by government.

Left to Right: W. Michael Cox, PhD, Peter Goettler

Warren said: “there is nobody in this country who got rich on their own. You move your goods to market on roads the rest of us paid for. You hire workers the rest of us pay to educate. You are safe in your factory, because of the police and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You don’t have to worry that your factory will be seized by marauders, because of the work the rest of us did. Part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and you pay it forward for the next person that comes along.”

Join us for a very spirited discussion between host, Dennis McCuistion, and our guests who question her premise:

Dr. Cox says this is erroneous in several ways: “7% of America’s infrastructure which is used on a daily basis is not supplied by government. It comes from private organizations that have a profit objective”.

“Warren left out all of the private sector capital that people use. She mentions school transportation, roads used at other people’s expense etc. She didn’t mention that you use electricity, utilities, internet around the globe, computers, software, apps, cell phones, oil pipelines that come  from private sector companies that mine and refine them, and all of the rest of the things that are built by private citizens. She just focused on the few public sector things”.


If video doesn’t play correctly, open it here.

Peter Goettler argues, “We shouldn’t be subsidizing ANY business. If it’s doing well it doesn’t need subsidies, if not it fails. The whole thing is incestuous. Capital markets are supposed to be competitive. As government becomes more involved in having a role in markets people are waiting for the Feds to do something”.

Cato, a public policy research group and libertarian think tank, promotes the moral and philosophical case for liberty, the cornerstone values of free markets, limited government and individual liberty and peace. He adds, “The vast majority of the resources to build a factory are actually provided by the private sector. Some things, yes, are provided by government and that doesn’t mean it’s necessarily well run. Education for instance”.

Dr. Cox agrees, “No amount of water will fill up the drain when the stopper is out and that’s what government is doing with our money”.

All believe solutions must begin at the Constitutional level. Congress should not be bailing out or subsidizing business.

McCuistion stirs up the debate when he says, “you can’t blame people for taking the money if it’s there.” Cox says, “of course I can. You make the laws that prohibit it”.

McCuistion asks we consider that there are ideologies involved without a doubt, but it’s the facts that really matter. This rousing segment on free market and economic progress is one you definitely do not want to miss.

If you’ve ever wondered why it’s so  easy to talk to some people; why you have an instant rapport with some and not others the answer might be you’re  not communicating  with people on their wavelength. According to Tony Alessandra, PhD, CSP, CPAE and author of The Platinum Rule , we too often treat people according to the Golden Rule:  “do unto others the way you’d have them do unto you”. A solid maxim, yet one that often backfires. We are not all the same, nor do we want the same things. Thus, Tony’s Platinum Rule, “do unto others as they would like to be done unto,” reframes communication.\\

This entry is part 3 of 3 in the series Education.  

Education is the focus of part three of this three part series on education. To date, the U.S. ranks 36th in the world in terms of overall education. Therefore it’s no surprise our experts conclude that the U.S. educational system needs restructuring. It is not educating our children to get the jobs that will help them be self-sufficient citizens.

Joining host, Dennis McCuistion, to discuss education are guests:

  • Linus Wright: Former Undersecretary of Education under President Reagan
  • Forrest E. Hoglund: Founder and President, The Hoglund Foundation and Co-Vice Chairman of Reasoning Minds
Left to Right: Linus Wright and Forrest E. Hoglund

Only 17% of those graduating from high school are qualified for a career in STEM related jobs. Only 7% of students reach an 8th grade math level. The just released Center for Education Reform (CER) 2014 National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), also known as the Nation’s Report Card, History, Geography, and Civics scores, President, Kara Kerwin, states: “In U.S. history, just 18 percent of students are at or above proficient, with 27 percent at or above proficient in geography and 23 percent at or above proficient in civics.” She says, “It’s astounding that not even one third of our nation’s eighth graders are proficient in subjects that are vital to our nation’s founding and democracy.”

In Math, the Sciences, History and Geography, scores have remained stagnant since 2010. Math coaches, math remediation, extra teachers, psychologists, more money, nothing seems to be helping. What does it take for the U.S. education system to become competitive?

According to Linus Wright, one answer is to  have to have the strongest curriculum in the world and we need to make learning fun. Our education system’s teachers are also very important as more than ever they need to be prepared to work with children of various backgrounds and socio-economic levels, values and proficiencies.


If video doesn’t play correctly, open it here.

Forrest E. Hoglund talks about potential solutions, one of which is Reasoning Minds. Reasoning Minds help kids learn conceptually while having fun. The system remembers what has been accomplished and tracks progress; so the students using it cannot move forward if they have not learned the present lesson. Reasoning Mind presently has 90,000 kids enrolled in 9 states. Texas and California have approved it as part of their curriculum.

We view a Reasoning Mind project started at the Momentous school, which primarily consists of disadvantaged kids. Implementing a vigorous program has consistently brought grades up. Kids get rewarded for accuracy and time on task. They can establish their own pace which helps them learn more effectively. In standard classrooms, time on task is often at 50% so kids are bored and eagerly wait for the school bell to release them.

All students can learn, albeit not at the same level.  Solutions include re-engineering, all the way back to the poverty level. Perhaps learning needs to start at 3 years of age. At ages 0-8 our brains improve at 700 neurons a second. Nurturing in the home, exposure to reading and language, loving “parents” are all critical factors. Without this kids come into the school system already behind and don’t catch up.

Kids can learn and teachers can teach if they have the modern tools to do so. We need transformational solutions and to look at education as neuroscience, teaching the way the brain processes. The good news is when children learn in a way that helps them learn and retain knowledge; it builds in them a confidence to learn even more.

This entry is part 2 of 3 in the series Education.  

Education in the United States is problematic. We keep throwing money at schools with no success. During this second episode in a three part series, we discuss whether education is progressing or declining.

Host, Dennis McCuistion, talks to guests:

  • Courtney Boswell: Executive Director, Texas Institute for Education Reform
  • The Honorable Kathleen Leos: CEO, the Global Institute for Language and Literacy Development, and
  • Quinn Vance: Executive Director, KIPP DFW
Left to Right: Courtney Boswell, Quinn Vance, Honorable Kathleen Leos

Panelists discuss the issues with education and whether our education system is progressing or declining.

They are joined through taped interviews by Charles Murray, author of The Bell Curve. According to Murray, part of the challenge is that some children from poor socio-economic environments do not have the tools they need at home to help them learn. The challenge is to meet kids where they are coming from, to be innovative, and that means expanding the scope toward education.

Our thinking needs to shift to give them a head start. Ms. Leos addresses the neurology of learning and language and the vocabulary issues that children have if they don’t have access to learning and reading at home.


If video doesn’t play correctly, open it here.

Examples of progress are exemplified by schools like KIPP. KIPP, which stands for, Knowledge is Power Program, was founded in 1994 to solve the concern that kids would not learn what they needed to in “regular” schools. KIPP wants their graduates to choose a successful life of their own choosing. To date they have 162 schools and 50,000 kids in the KIPP system. Quinn tells us that by 2015 KIPP aspires to 10,000 KIPP students who have graduated high school and are in college.

Progress may also mean Charter schools and having standards schools must adhere to. It’s about measurements and what we expect and to what we will hold students and teachers accountable.

TIER, Texas Institute for Education Reform, tells us more about testing. Testing is a data base point and not the only metric used or needed; it is also controversial.

Lawrence Steinberg, author of Beyond the Classroom, joins us to talk about the political aspects of education. The issue is not just in the classroom, it’s also taking a look at what else do kids need to learn and know in order to be successful.

Overall, the biggest problems teachers face is not about money or having the books and the right tools. It’s kid’s attitudes and values, which today amongst some is antithetical to learning. The issue may be what children bring to the classroom to allow for the exchange of information. Kids who are not fully engaged are not receptive to learning. And the education challenge is growing.

This entry is part 1 of 3 in the series Education.  
Education is the subject of the first part in a three part series on 25 Years of Education. In the 1983 report A Nation At Risk, President Reagan said, “if an unfriendly foreign power had intended to impose on America the mediocre education system that exists today, we might well have viewed it as an act of war”.

In the U.S. education today costs 2.5 times more per pupil than it did 50 years ago, yet Math and English grades have stayed the same, and Science grades are actually down. We are spending more on education than any other country in the world and getting less return on investment for it.

According to the Nation At Risk report, our educational system is not designed to set goals and objectives. From 1983 to today our efforts to correct this have met with little success.

Joining us to talk about our systems, where we were in 1990, and what were/are the issues are seasoned professional education experts:

  • Linus Wright: Undersecretary of Education under President Regan.
  • The Honorable Kathleen Leos: CEO of the Global Institute for Language and Literacy Development and
  • Lisa Hembry: Executive Director LIFT, Literacy Instruction for Texas.
  • (Dr. Walter Edwards Williams, economist and educator, states his opinion from a previously taped program).

Our experts tell us that while people talk about the “good old days” rgarding education, this is not accurate. Prior to WWII, only half of our youngsters attended school full time. This changed when in 1949 we passed a compulsory attendance act which compelled those, 6-17 years of age to attend school. This led to 98% of our youngsters enrolling in classes. Yet, we have never educated more than 25% of the population.

While today there may be more students enrolled in school we are still not adequately preparing them for the future. In some urban schools only 8-10% of all students are prepared for college or work. We have a dropout rate of 30-40%.

Poverty is one of the key issues. Poor kids often come to school without an adequate vocabulary, which may consist of 300-400 words vs. middle class students who start school with a vocabulary of 2000 words. If a child can’t read by the 4th grade, he or she may never catch up and starting with a more robust vocabulary is essential.

85% of juveniles who enter the court system are functionally illiterate. 70% of inmates in prison can’t read beyond the 4th grade. 19% of high school graduates can’t read beyond lower grade school level! In some states only 1 year of math and 2 years of English are required to graduate.


If video doesn’t play correctly, open it here.

Are there solutions? Our experts say, we need standards, assessments and a way to measure progress. And more.

Join us to learn more about the “good old days” that never existed. And what still needs to be resolved with this 25 year retrospective on education.

Joining host, Dennis McCuistion, are Guests:

Robert Hall, a Dallas businessman and best-selling author, of This Land of Strangers: The Relationship Crisis That Imperils Home, Work, Politics and Faith and several other business books, including, The STREETCORNER STRATEGY for Winning Local Markets, “which inspired the customer relationship management movement”, was recently interviewed by the Dallas Morning News.

He believes there is a growing crisis in relationships. Financial, social, psychological situations, exacerbated by the economy and disintegrating relationships are causing chaos. Broken relationships have a high cost on our social and economic welfare.

Left to Right: Mahmoud Sadri, Phd, Dennis McCuistion, Ami Moore, Phd, Robert E. Hall

Dr. Ami Moore, a Fulbright scholar, says she sees the problem as universal, not just a North American problem. In her extended research studies in West Africa, she experienced how changing relationships are causing new challenges as families drift further from their native roots. She says, “No-one teaches us to manage changes”. And the many changes she observed are increasingly negative, particularly affecting those with reduced incomes, “These changes in male and female relationships are increasingly causing breakdowns in family relationships and marriages”.

Robert Hall tells us that for the first time in history, in 2012, 50% of children born in the US are born to single moms; their children face a poverty level 5 times that of their peers in two “parent” households. In friend relationships, there have been decreases in the number of friend’s people now have- from an average of three to now two, and the number of people without any close friends has now tripled.


If video doesn’t play correctly, open it here.

Yet, Dr. Mahmoud Sadri states that he does not see a relationship crisis. While we are in challenging times he also sees this as a time of dynamic equilibrium, that there is hope for the future and many new ways of relating are open to us.

The good news is that there is a 38% increase in the amount of time parents are spending with their kids. And our social media experts, Terry Brock and Gina Carr, who join us for a brief excerpt, say, we have to do things differently. They comment, “Social media is a wonderful way to connect, it leverages touch and interaction.”

Join us for a brisk dialogue on the challenges facing relationships today and let’s keep talking about things that matter with people who care…
