I think with the high price of oil, an unstable dollar and unemployment rates almost at Canadas levels, that its time for us to start drilling in Alaska and other states. Alaska actually has a surplus for the most part due to oil and gas. its sad when many nations over seas that we do get our oil from are so unstable such as Georga or nations like Venezuela that can have a bad impact on our economy. yes I support cleaner energy but why not drill untill we can find alternative fuels? I think Alaska and Sarah Palin have it right

Well if you look at it, we could be an exporter of oil and gas, insted we are slaves to other nations like Venezuela and Saudia Arabia. its just insane!

To me. We have to drill every spot there is for oil. And at the same time as drilling we need to work on other energy sources. But to let it sit up there doing nothing is crazy.

Agreed! Drill while developing new technology. By the time these technologies are available to the public, we should have sufficient infrastructures to support them.

combo wind and solar on your house you can actually come off the grid and make a profit selling energy back ! so not just free but profitable and the government has great grants to offset the cost of installation. Not to mention the more we steer towards solar and wind power the more affordable it will become and the more jobs it will create making a permanent solution rather than a temporary fix drilling for oil. This is not a time for myopic thinking.

Thats true. Instead of paying the electric company they would pay you. To bad you can't jack the price up and stickit to them like they do to people.

Wind power is not  going to work.  It is killing bats by the thousands.  Either by shreading them in the rotors or causing internal hemorraging. Basically their little bat lungs explode.

Wonder if Congress is proposing putting bats on the endangered species list along with the polar bears ?   Doubt it.

There is still enough Oil out there really. And because of that alternative will have little chance in the market, if the world Oil consumption drops so will the price and then you will be in a situation that Oil is cheap and the supply is good. Guess what will happen?

That's still not free.  You're still paying for the equipment and you're still affecting your local environment.  Do you know how much higher the ambient temperature is above solar panels?  How many birds and bats will be hurt/killed by the windmill?  What environmental impact is caused by the turbulence generated by the windmill?  There is no free ride.

Drill in Alaska now.  We may have to end up selling Alaska to help pay off our debt.
