All of our energy problems could have been solved in the 70's
with the huge discovery of oil on Gull Island, Prudhoe Bay,
Alaska. One of the richest oil fields on earth belongs to the
American people. There is more pure grade oil there than in all
of Saudi Arabia. Gull Island contains as much oil and natural
gas as Americans could use in 200 years. Many, many other oil
fields of the same high quality crude exist throughout and around
Alaska," according to Williams

Upon the massive discovery the Federal Government immediately
ordered the rigs to be capped and the oil production shut down,
as the International Bankers scurried to take control and contain
this major news item. This feat could never have been
accomplished without the aid of an already compromised mainstream
media.

Since that time, four Presidential Administrations have been
willing participants in robbing the American people of their
greatest treasure. The rise in energy costs is tantamount to a
Global Tax, which has served them well since the 70's. The
elevated price of gas is a form of worldwide taxation, which goes
directly into the pockets of the World Bank to fund their New
World Order

Sounds like time for solar heat to me and why do people in those cold climates build houses like they do.

Blame the GREEN SLIME FREAKS...and their GRINCH ,HUSSEIN......Today Gas is over a dollar higher than just last year....When NIMBNUTS came ,it was $1.79...Fuel oil about the same...well with this Freak,Quack,Incompetent... lOOKATCHONEW~

They made Americas Quest to be Energy rich,and Independence Impossible..This because of the LUNATICS,FAR LET,CRAZIES in OBAMAS GOVERNMENT......THEY ARE KILLING AMERICA!

The US production of OIL is dead...Even to get some OIL from Canada,OBAMA BLOCKS THIS.....One can only believe HE IS BENT ON DESTROYING AMERICA.....

OUR COUNTRY NEEDS ENERGY!.....All other s know that..CHINA.is GOBBLING UP OIL WORLD WIDE.....even in CUBA,and South America

OIL IS THE LIFE BLOOD OF AMERICA....AMERICA GREW GREAT ON OIL.....

We Today are one Step away from the STONE AGE....If Our National Electric Grid Stalls because of no energy to produce Electric..ITS AMERICAS DARK AGES.

THE ASS HOLE who preach GREEN ,are now in the SENATE getting TAX PAYERS MONEY to give to those who are about to freeze......

OBAMAS,LOONS,GREEN SLIME INSANITY!

GOD DAM AMERICA?..They Have!

Think it is bad now, it is only going to get worst. With the actions of the Federal Reserve yesterday injection 7.7T into the global economy with reduced rates to the ECB for currency swaps, this will put more US Dollars into the system.

When more dollars are injected into the system and there is no increase in goods and services, what happens to the price of these goods and services? Naturally, they go up. Now are wages going up to compensate for this increase of money into the system? Nope. Not one penny.

Also, did the people approve of this measure with "OUR" money? Nope, the Fed just did it on their own. Bend over boys and girls and grab your ankles, you just got F'd and did not even get the common courtesy of a reach around.

Obama still will not build the Keystone pipeline to create jobs and lower our dependence on foreign oil.

Nothing but a bunch of treehugging idiots that can't see the forrest for the trees.

And the self-serving obama playing to his marxist base halted the Canadian oil pipeline. Hopefully the fools who voted for obama get hit the worst...they certainly deserve it and more.

Hi,i lived in BETHEL NY,had an old farm house...Burned WOOD!...also OIL,it was reasonable then...One Year it was a BUCK A GALLON!..like YOU IN BEAUTIFUL ROCHESTER,air condition WAS NEVER A NESSITY1

I remember insulating our old farm house with Cow Manure....Places all around the foundation...Kept it from Freezing!

Our Tractors,tree harvesting Equipment,our trucks, our milkers, the heat needed to make syrup,were based on available cheep energy...As it was ,and built America.

While the rest of the world is catching up with the US,they do so with OIL,,,,like we did,ask any chink,or Indian.And they do not cut their balls off in doing so..As OBAMA and LOONS are!

So now new generations are here,dreamers,Losers,Lazy Louts,,Tree huggers,the same SHIT that was in my BETHEL NY in 1969...The Age Of Aquarius..When I seen that Then,I knew America was in a HEAPA TROUBLE...and unfortunately it came to pass...AMERICAS WORST GENERATION..GOD DAMNING AMERICA!

Did ya have a good DEER SEASON?....Ready for the Big sleep?..Stocked up?...Most importantly got enough Fire Wood?...MERRY CHRISTMAS..from the Bone yard On The GULF COAST.....CHEERS!!

When the sun does not shine they still work at a lower efficiency than on a sunny day but work it does. I know it works just fine in Montana that is pretty far north last time I looked at a map. However your right I am an asshole because when people try to blame other people for their not being able to solve their own problems I dump it back in their lap. You should plan ahead and think outside the box.

There is more than one generation which will be lost, there is mine as a baby boomer, the money will run out for my health care and the young will get taxed for death for the decisions of politicians who will be long gone. I read a lot and it is really hard to tell when the point of now return has been passed but it is kind of like a car heading for a bridge which is out, you get to a point when it does not matter how fast or slow you are going when you go over the edge. All these little things we bitch about now will be nothing.

And I don't go for made in china solar cells and they are not cost effective anyway. Warmth is about two things, an insulated home preferably insulated by the earth and the sun even through the clouds will heat water and hot water can heat your home. Have enjoyed a water heated home since I saw my dad build one in the 1960's .

Been there and done that,lived 25 miles outside of Watertown (NY) for a few years at the end of the lake across the river from Canada.Old farm house-coal heat-one floor register. Deer season is always great up here,big sleep?,no,retired and I make the most of everyday while I still can.Stocked up?,you bet,the old saying: I rather have and not need than need and not have,I live by that rule.You and your family all have a MERRY CHRSTMAS and a great,safe New Year.(that last part will pi$$ off the libs and their "holiday" tree)

I bet if someone started to shoot the Koke Btothers and their relatives, the prices will start to go down.
