I have to put this in it's most basic terms. We [MAN] have always fought over energy. Food is energy. Land is energy beacuse we grow food on it as well as heat our homes and feed livestock on it. It all equals fuel in today' world. Oil, coal, Nuclear, Solar, Wind, Hydro etc. We and the rest of the world needs it to sustain ourselves. We have reached a standard of living that needs to be fed by energy. We will not lower our way of life. Get over it. We will drill. We will develop new sources. We will make it more efficient. We will not go back to riding horses and living in caves. As soon as some understand the problem, then we all can come together and agree on drilling now. If liberals were so smart, they'd be the ones finding a new way to make energy without polution. In the meantime, we need oil now. Russia is securing their oil right now. We will have Alaska and Iraq maybe someday soon Venesuela. We should flood the world's market with oil get the price down to $1 per.gal. gas. OPEC like all unions needs to be broken up.
