    Dear Liberals,

    Can you contact your leadership and tell them to start supporting domestic fuel production starting with exploring/drilling ANWR immediately? I’m certain the 3 polar bears that live in that frozen tundra wasteland will not be inconvenienced anywhere near as much as you eco-freaks think they will!

    Thank you,

    1BiGG1 :cool:

    if handled correctly, it would certainly bring the price of gas down. not a lot, maybe not even enough to make a difference, and that depends on whether greedy companies all of a sudden have a change of heart and instantly start caring about the people that buy their product (fat chance)but i really enjoy the steakhouse burger from burger king. that's a phenomenal sandwich.

    It's not about the polar bears, it's about preserving our resources while the rest of the world runs out...

    i find the preservation ideas slightly histarical because it seems like everyday, forests and plains are hacked up to make malls we don't really need and apartment complexes that ultimately serve as hiding places for out-of-state fugitives.

    Opps, thanks for pointing out my spelling error!



    Fossil oil will be so antiquated in a few decades lets go ahead and use it now while we need it.

    Leaving it in the ground is preserving it, pumping it out and burning it up is not.

    Developing it would benefit the oil company's bottom line, they are really having hard time making a profit these days. It would also provide some construction jobs in this state, which my union would like, and increase the state government's income for a while. The state presently has a large budget surplus.

    The benefit to the rest of the country would be extremely insignificant.

    I take it macroeconomics is not part of your resume? Adding trillions of dollars to the domestic economy instead of sending it to somebody else’s is not what I would call “insignificant”

    I know, I agree that, where there's oil, drill. And don't understand how we tear down rainforests and pave over plains like nobody's business, but claim we can't drill for oil we need cuz we wanna "preserve nature". That's like someone fighting against killing chickens to eat, then hacking the head off a cow and making burgers.

    No, but I have worked in the oil industry in Alaska from 1975 on, most on the North Slope. Not totally ignorant.

    Trillions?

    Domestic?

    Controlling interest at Prudhoe Bay is owned by British Petroleum. If you did not know, they are headquartered in London.
