Even as a kid, I understood where fossil fuels came from and that they are non-renewable energy sources.
Ok - so the entire free (and not so free) world runs on oil, a plentiful natural resource that we currently buy mostly from countries that are essentially contentious towards us. Why not drill in areas owned by the US? The natural resources are not just for the American animals in desolate frozen deserts - but the humans who inhabit this earth. Modern oil rigging is extremely safe, effective and protective of the environment. Why let the rest of the world hold us by our balls?
It reminds me of the idiots that dispute the environmental impact humans have on the planet.
What idiots are disputing the environmental impact humans have on the earth? Many people do not believe the hoax that is global warming - there is no good science confirming that humans are actually warming the earth. In the mean time, we had better get some more oil of our own to regain control of our own energy destiny.
No matter what you say, the world runs on oil and there is no alternate fuel created yet capable of running cars, airplanes and heating homes. Period. So lets get to it, and get OUR oil from OUR land for OUR country.This comment was edited on Jul 22, 23:22.
