I would like to add in here that I don’t think drilling for more oil is the end-all only solution to the energy problem. I think it is one amongst many things we need to do. However, the one thing that doesn’t make any sense is doing nothing. Wishful thinking for a miracle solution to just appear that is going to totally fix our dependence on oil is absolutely ridiculous.
I will support whoever is actually going to do something about the energy problem and help us become independent from foreign sources.
