    BP and the oil spill. It was bound to happen. Why? Because shit happens.
    1969 Oil Spill - Summary Articles and Images

    Where are all the loudmouths on the right and others who tout drilling in pristine areas? Where do the right and Obama stand on building more Nuke reactors? Accidents can and do happen.

    Why not openly and fairly address the long term costs of waste and short term benefits of energy production? Waste products pose a huge problem. New nuclear reactor?s waste is seven times more hazardous, Greenpeace exposes | Greenpeace International

    I understand there are costs to all actions. But I wonder if we really truly discuss what we are getting into or does private industry get to dictate the mistakes we will live with?

    why? I buckle up. Risk is not always worth taking.

    see my post where I say I support some ANWR proposals. I'm so sorry to spoil your limited world view where liberals are some sort of one-dimensional mirror opposites of you and your ilk.

    I got a better idea.

    Let's use our $600 billion in defense spending to crush the Middle East once and for all and take all the damn oil we want.
