Drill

People ask me often, "so what do you think about drilling?" My answer is always the same, "why not?" It is clear that we need to find away to create newer and cleaner energy but, until we do, we need to still be tapping into our natural resources.Unless politicians get off their asses, and say yes to more drilling, this country will have more than just financial failure to worry about. You cannot simply shut off our oil supply and expect everyone to go out and buy a new bike or hybrid auto. People who work for a living cannot afford that, it is just that simple. Nor can we all afford to run out and buy new heating systems for our homes.
As far as the animals go, They will do just fine if we drill in ANWAR. I was watching the History channel the other day and they had a show about Alaska. They mentioned ANWAR and the potential damage that could be done while showing video of mountains and beautiful mountain lakes and even Eagles. Excuse me, I said excuse me, but that is not the ANWAR that the drilling will take place in. Imagine if you will the ugliest part of North Dakota, no offense ND but it is just for comparisons. There are no mountains, there is most likely small bodies of water but certainly no mountain lakes. I am also sure that there are no Eagles in the area where drilling will take place.
I love animals especially the ones up here. There are a large number of them to see on the North Slope most of which take refuge on the Prudhoe Bay Oil Field. They are protected here, there is no hunting allowed and no weapons except by the security officers and North Slope police officers as well as other law enforcement officers.
It is time to start working toward the new energy sources all right but if you think the current economic problems are bad your gonna love whats coming unless we fill the gap between petroleum and new energy in a responsible manner.

*Sigh* Politics! I am being governed by people who are disconnected with the most important issues in this world, but claim they have the resolution for them all. I'm so glad I can vote now!

P.S.
Lovely pic.

Thank you for sharing your knowledge of the ANWAR site, Randy. Videos shown during ANWAR discussions or ads are always of the most beautiful, pristine vistas and exquisite wildlife of Alaska. Knowing now exactly the kind of terrain within which the drilling will take place, from the eyes of someone who works in Alaska, is good information. We trust you, Randy. Thanks again.

Thanks for your thoughts/ideas/opinions on ANWAR. I have a dad in the oil industry and to be honest, I could really care less if we are drilling in a pristine area- they can go in, drill and be done with it, leaving nary a footprint when they're done. But to know that we're in the barren grassland such as that in ND (I'm living in SD) that's even the better.

I'm really tired of politicians that don't answer to me- that simply answer to their stupid lobbyists.
