    I dont have a problem with exploration as long as we have thought about the consequences (economical and environmental). I think everyone understands that ANWR is not going to bear fruit for 10 years. The problem that I have is we arent spending any real money on what really counts...alternative sources of energy (please dont start saying we arent running out of oil...eventually, at some point we will). As usual, we go for the band-aide and ignore the real problem. The market won't work on it until there is a demand. We can create that demand through tax incentives (or quicker commute times i.e. hybrid cars in the carpool lanes). My .02

    There is ongoing research for alternative fuels.

    Excellent!
    Our country has put a man on the moon (years ago), and built bombs that are smarter than people (they are called Smart Bombs - are they not?), and has the most innovative brains on earth yet, and for some odd reasons (pun intended!), this country can't come up with an alternative energy to oil that will put an end to Middle Eastern Tyrant-Regimes that suck money like mosquitos suck blood?!

    True. But the 1970's long-gasoline lines apparently didn't teach us a whole lot. Some 30+ years later we have no (serious) alternative to gasoline and Tyrant-Saudis are laughing all the way to their Swiss banks....

    My bust on that...I should have previewed before I posted.

    Long, but good. Did you read it, Joe, or just make a comment?

    Ouch...I spent 7 months in Ft. Lost in the Woods, Misery for Basic and advanced. I was a 51-T....Technical Engineering Specialist or for non-military folks..."Civil Engineer", which is what my college degrees are in.

    Anyway, what does drilling for oil actually include? The steps? That red square that was on the picture, do they clear cut that entire red square before the start to drill or just clear cut a certain area and test? Anyone know?

    I guess I could google it...but once my homework assignment finishes printing out, I'm going to start doing it
