Hey "gangsta granny", The real reason your pissed-off
is because your not smart enough to be a rich oil man like me. If you was, you'd be as big a scoundrel as I am, and you'd live in a mantion next door to mine.(There goes the neihborhood)
Yep your a real winner you are, can't even spell mansion. What an idiot. Go somewhere else and play fool, like maybe in shark infested waters. At least you'd be doing something worthwhile with your otherwise useless butt. Eat up Jaws. lol

Nuclear energy is the quickest way out of this mess but there will be every roadblock imaginable thrown in the way of development of its use. Add that to the fact that private industry doesn't possess the resources for development on a massive scale, and it leaves you with the biggest government project since developing the bomb.
Since you are such a chearleader for nuclear energy, you wouldn't mind storing these thousands of barrels of nuclear waste in your back yard, now would you?

Hey, you got more room in your basement?

This Thanksgiving, I will be driving about 560 miles.
My car get 28 miles per gallon.
Which means it will take about 20 gallons for my trip.
If gas goes UP 20 cents, it means the trip will cost an EXTRA 4 dollars.
A measly 4 dollars extra.
An extra 4 dollars is NOT going to stop me from going on my trip this holiday.
equals 40 miilion more for

I can't recall where I read this, but I think it's in the Gulf of Mexico that one of the fields there is actually refilling itself with crude. How or why has yet to be determined but the people interviewed were very surprised that it's happening.

The French have, evidently, figured out a way to recycle the waste to practically nothing.

"Point Thomson is the North Slope's second largest natural gas field, after 9 TRILLION cubic feet of gas reserves, more than a quarter of the known gas in all North Slope fields.
Alaska officials ruled in 2005 that Exxon Mobil was in default for delaying development by submitting a plan without any sure date for production to begin."

This battle to get Exxon to drill Point Thomson has been going on for over 30 years. Point Thomson is a proven field while ANWR which sits right beside PT is a more difficult field to reach and is FACTUALLY unproven as to its true potential. Oddly, there is not a national group of dumb environmentalist creating the Point Thomson bottleneck... it is solely Exxon and 2 other energy companies (BP and Chevron which also happen to be the same companies that beat their chest in TV commercials about how great they are). These companies flat refuse to drill PT energy resources. To date, enough lawsuits have been filed to delay drilling for at least another 15 years based on Exxon's current track record. You got to love it.

And yes, availability of natural gas does have a direct impact on price and consumption of all other energy types.

G-Hogg , you're wasting your time with idiots who only get their information from moveon and daily kos. They still believe that Three Mile Island was a disaster, hundreds of people died and that it will take thousands of years to become a safe area once again.
