Another problem that the Left-Wing Enviroterrorists won't talk about - With the promotion and increased use of alternative fuels, i.e., corn and sugar cane based ethanol, soy bean and palm oils for blended diesel fuels, farmers in South America and elsewhere are clearcutting thousands of acres of pristine forest to meet the demand for these "greener" fuels.
Wouldn't a more sensible and more environmentally friendly solution (for the US) be to drill in ANWAR. So much for saving the Earth.

They have no interest in "green" fuel. If there is fuel, there will be roads.

I've often wondered how much environmental damage has been wrought on third-world countries by our locking up our own natural resources so that they can not be developed in a somewhat-environmently friendly manner. ANWR is one example, selective logging in NW forests is another. So in addition to our jobs being moved to a third-world country, resource extraction with little regard for the environment occurs there.
Interestingly enought, after only a few seasons of crop growing in the former rain forests, the soil is barren of nutrients and you have a barren desert in the middle of the tropics with soil erosion, silty runnoff and impacts on the rivers. I'm not saying it all could have been averted, but our shutting down of industry with the demand for raw materials unabated leads to this inevitable outcome.

How much oil is in ANWAR?
