what are we going to do? use all our oil up in the next few years and then be faced with the same problem we have now. Pollute the environment even more kill alot of animals that we like to hunt . Drilling in america is not the oil answer. Oil independence period is the answer. Let's get a short term fix until we can develop some better transportation and stuff like mandate all cars being made get 40 miles a gallon until we do something better. Anything. Not Drilling.

I think all the environmental whack jobs that do not want us to drill for oil should be the first ones to give up their cars and start walking. Finding alternative sources is fine and there is nothing wrong with pursuing that but in the mean time we need to do something before the economy of the US is completely destroyed. If that happens I guess all the tree huggers will be satisfied.

In case you have not noticed OPEC and those Persian Gulf financed Terrorists it represents and is made up of... have jacked up the price of oil more in the last two years then in the last twenty...

As gas prices continue to increase, Congress continues to blame others while ignoring practical steps to stop the pain Americans are feeling at the pump. To lower gasoline prices and reduce our dependence on foreign oil, we need real solutions to our energy challenges...

Oil prices drive inflation higher
Annual cost-of-living rate rises to 4.2% after higher-than-expected May increase. Energy costs surge 17.4% over 12 months.

Titles are un-American.
Even if we had an infinite amount of oil we could easily tap, and it did zero environmental damage, it would still be a bad idea.

Oil requires a lot of logistics. It requires pipelines, gas stations, trucks, etc. This is bad from a strategic standpoint, as it necessarily creates weak spots where our entire energy capability can be gutted just be damaging a handful of key ports and refineries.

We need a more distributed network of smaller-scale energy sources, preferably based on straight electricity.

Economic pain motivates change, and using oil or oil shale "in the meantime" will just get us sidetracked. We have to suck it up, stop complaining and just do it.

It will take time to develope new technology

It will take time to develop new technology and this will help buy that time. I respectfully request that you rethink your position on this and get on the team for the big win.

I agree that there are resources that are currently out of reach. But we can use those as well as leverage to develop new technologies to extract those as well. Any time U.S. inventors are allowed to think outside the box, good things happen for the country and the economy. As per your avatar, "capitalism is my friend". I suggest you live it while you can or we may all be in a mosque 5 times a day facing east and sticking our butts in the air.:boom04:

If you spend a few minutes actually reading the sources provided...
E.G.:
http://www.americansolutions.com/

You will find that rebuilding our distribution and other energy related infrastructure that the tree huggers, liberals, and democrats like the Kennedy(s), Hanoi John Kerry, Dianne Gun Grabbing, Banning Feinstein, Chuck Ban All Guns Schumer (The Democratic Parties Number One Campaign Fund Raiser), Jimmy Give Amnesty To All illegals Carter, Slick Willie & Billary Clinton and Barack Hussein Anti-American, Gun Banning, Amnesty Loving, Tax & Spend, Entitlements for All Obama have squashed over the last 3 decades is part of the DRILL HERE DRILL NOW INITIATIVE to work towards ENDING dependence on the Persian Gulf suppliers (OPEC) whom are financing the very terrorists that seek to destroy every American and Jew on earth by any means necessary with no distinction between men, women, children, old or infirm...

But we don't want oil on our beaches. That is BS they are very safe and little spilled. Do you think the chicons will care 75 miles of florida .

If we find more oil, we won't be motivated to develop new technology. We will go back to 1985 and sit on our hands for a couple more decades. People are very myopic, and are highly unlikely to embrace something different when their current needs are satisfied.

Pain creates demand, which is fulfilled by suppliers. Take away the pain, and you reduce demand. That doesn't produce results.

Pain is a necessary ingredient for change. When the cost of the pain outweighs the benefit of inaction, it focuses effort, commits one to achieve a goal and causes one to work tirelessly at removing the source of the pain.

If gas goes back to $2.00/gallon, we will do nothing other than forget about working on the problem, until it eventually comes back - and far worse than before. We should address it now and stop thinking of reasons to tap out.

I respectfully disagree. Even if gas went to 32¢ a gallon, people these days would still want a vehicle that uses less of it or just want the gas for free. Americans are getting greedier and greedier these days, and the years of high gas prices have probably scared and scarred us enough to still consider other sources of energy.

That happened after the energy crisis of the 70s, but it only lasted for about 10 years. Then everyone forgot about it and went back to driving giant SUVs, and here we are again. People forget quickly.

If we would have made it a priority then, when there were actually fewer people committed to car-based transportation (proportionally more people still walked or used bicycles) we would be much better off now.

So now we have an extra 20 years of ICE development which is useless to us, and a moderate amount of experience on alternative fuels, most of which has been frantically accumulated in the last five years. Getting even farther behind will not do us any good.
