What Part Of 'Drill Now' Do They Not Understand?

by A.W.R. Hawkins - July 24th, 2008 - Human Events

In Colorado and Wyoming alone we have oil deposits sufficient to rival those of Saudi Arabia. Those, plus the use of ocean rigs, would easily result in over a hundred years of fuel for our nation. Yet Reid and Pelosi will not even consider removing the Congressional ban on offshore drilling. Rather, they spend their time talking about the current “energy crisis.” But with oil supplies such as those in Colorado, Wyoming, and the ocean untapped, this doesn’t really seem like an energy crisis as much as it seems like a concerted effort on the part of Reid and Pelosi to keep America from enjoying her independence.

The rational need to drill for oil is being supported by more and more people who are tired of the lie that carbon dixoide is a pollutant and causes temperature increases. More and more people know the truth. The "hockey stick" computer program is a lie. NOTHING indicates burning oil, or drillling for oil, if done in an environmentally safe way, harms the environment. As noted in this article, the caribou are thriving and their numbers are increasing BECAUSE of the Alaska Pipleline.

It has gotten to the point where the old joke is actually true. How can you tell if an environmentalist extremist is lying? Because you can see their lips move.

I am an environmentalist. Most conservatives are. Rejecting the extremist message does not mean we are not responsible stewards of our world. It simply means we reject the anti-human messasge of PETA and similar adherents to extremist orthodoxy.
