But I do fail to see a reason why we shouldn't be allowed to recover even one barrel if it is done in a responsible manner.
I can agree with you there. We need to stop exporting our Alaskan Crude and we need to tap any Light Sweet crude supplies we have here.

The left won't ever let that happen, even if we could absolutely prove ZERO environmental impact!

Sorry for calling you dumb. I get aggrevated when I see information like that that is so blatantly false and so easily researched.

Fair enough. True that a lot of erroneous information is disseminated with little regard to fact checking. The real truth is we likely have no idea how much recoverable oil IS within our borders and territorial waters, and probably won't because of the restrictions placed on discovery. Sad truth.

Thats why I posted
We get 52% of our electricity from COAL.
With the newer ways of burning it being very clean(fluid bed gassifiers) But instead of making that even cleaner the golden O said he was going to bankrupt the industry?

Sure foreign countries benefit from oil speculators running the price of a barrel of oil up. And it's going to continue until their reserves are gone. Guess what happens when we're the only one left with any oil reserves?

Another reason why politically nobody is in a hurry to tap into this and create cheap prices at the pump like in Venezuala (sp?) is because high gas prices cause consumers to gripe at car companies to make cars with higher milage, and then buy them. Look what happened to Prius sales last year after the gas prices dropped from $4.50/gal back down to $2.25/gal. If gas were .16/gal we'd all be driving Hummer H1's.

Still another reason to preserve this oil reserve is because using it on fuel for cars is a waste. If we get cars off gasoline the reserve can be used for other things that require oil to make, like plastics and other materials. Guess where the rest of the world will be when we're the only source of oil needed in the production of these materials that are so necessary to daily life? Iow, the money won't be flowing from west to east forever.

Your nuts if you think we (the US) have enough oil reserves to fuel the world...

And the only thing a Prius does is make hippies happy. It can't haul a load or any more than 2 human adults comfortably. Also, in the grand scheme of things(over a lifecycle), a Prius is a VERY environmentally dirty vehicle. Those batteries are really nasty and it takes a LOT of energy to make em. They don't just appear out of no where.

Oh, and we all wouldn't be driving Hummers with cheap gas. We all weren't doing it when it was cheap and we won't be doing it again if gas is ever cheap again.
