I think you might have missed the sarcasm in my first post.;-)
I am all for drilling and know the area they want to drill is a wasteland.
One part of this picture I don't have is when some of the anti-drillers say thet the rest of the North Slope is open for drilling. Do you know any of the history as to why the spot that has the oil was the spot to be protected? Did they know the oil was there when it was made a refuge?
We knew there was oil 2 decades ago, oil companies were drooling at the opportunity to drill. It began dcades ago was enhanced by Carter and the drilling was prohibited by a Clinton veto.
