Is there any way we could convert illegal immigrants into fuel?Posted by Two Birds with One Stone on November 14, 2007 04:50 PM
ANWR, out of bounds; 85% of the outer-continental shelf, out of bounds as Cuba and China joint-venture 45-miles off the Florida Keys; nuke power plants, out of bounds; coal gasification, out of bounds; new crude refineries, out of bounds; Vermillion, out of bounds.
Meanwhile ethanol, solar and windmills that have been promising big things for generations will continue to make their usual pissant contribution that will remain pissant for the entire 21st century.
Get ready for $5 p/g at the pump. The folks back east are staring eyeball to eyeball with $2,000 per month to keep their homes warm. Biofuel that! Or are we now moving onto the unfulfilled, yet exciting, promise of cow flatulence?Posted by Hank on November 15, 2007 06:17 AM
You could drill in every place that the letter writer and the infamous Hankster state are off-limits and we still will not be energy independent. We're not going to be able to drill our way to energy independence. Every study out there shows that the world is consuming far more oil that can be extracted. No one seems to want to do the practical things, like build cars that get better mileage or build houses far enough apart that they can get some of their heat from passive solar. Mr. Lipton and Hankster remind me of the little dutchmen trying to plug more holes in the dam than he has fingers.Posted by Keith and Hank sittin' in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G on November 15, 2007 11:39 AM
