I would not be surprised to hear later that this was an act of violence to "prove a point" about drilling along the Gulf.

Running out of oil is not just a liberal issue, we will run out of oil in our lifetime. If you aren't part of the solution, then you're part of the problem. It's up to you.

definitely. but unfortunately most of the world's remaining oil is off-shore. we must quickly transition to an oil-free economy, a post Peak Oil world. time is running out. indecision means more eco-tragedies ahead.
