Oil is at Record Highs, yet what are we doing to move toward energy independence? Drilling in ANWAR? Nope, Expanding the use of Coal… Not a chance… building more Nuclear power facilities? Again the answer is NO! Politicians from both parties have campaigned for years about energy independence yet all we get from either party is more rhetoric and no real solutions. It is well past time to put politics aside and actually do something here.
Politicians from both sides of the aisle have objected for years about expanding exploration and drilling in the Gulf of Mexico & off the coast of California, yet none of these same politicians raised a voice of concern when Cuba & China announced plans to do exactly that.
Now I know that we will never drill our way to energy Independence, but we should be expanding our exploration and drilling for oil in a sound environmentally friendly way while we research and develop new energy sources.
Who stands a better chance of getting oil from the Gulf without endangering the environment… It certainly is not the Chinese…. But I am sure that with the right contributions to a Presidential wannabe the Federal Government will remain silent on the issue.
Proprierter Nation has an older Post on Energy Independence and our Addiction to oil… If anyone else has a post on this issue I would be glad to link to it here.. Just put a note in the comments.
