Free energy?  LMAO!!  Who is going to give you free energy?

wind for one, solar  for  another  it actually  is  so cost effective, we use green energy and  it has cut my electric bill by more than half... energy efficent appliances and light bulbs ....there are many ways to  be a part  of the  green movement.....

we have  a bunch of self absorbed inconsiderate american corps  who  dont care as long as they are rich ..

i concur we should be as so many other countries who are all committed to going green .....and have plans in place  to do just  this or have , read about brazil and isreal and the amazing strides Germany has made....the rest of the world is focused on  the enviornment and protecting it....  

there is no excuse that we should  be so behind and lazy about instituting changes...If I wait for my country to get wth the program I will be waiting for ever  so many of us  are doing for ourselves.....

Instead of spending all that money looking for new oil, they should put that money to invest in Super Efficient Solar cells.

New technology like the Thin Film solar cells Nano Solar

A solar cell that uses the same process as photosynthesis Dyesol

and solar cells that work in shade and low light G24i

Now that is the future, not oil

Who's money will be spent? this is not a communists nation. many oil companies will spend thier money, not tax payer dollars. Alaska isn't the only state to have oil, they just found some here off the cost of North Carolina.

Why don't you ask the oil companies why they don't drill and produce more? There are millions of acres available for drilling and they do not. This is a fake issue. You cannot force the oil companies to drill. The meager offshore and anwr sites are not the only pool of oil available. It's the whole grasss is always greener where we can't go. BS.

LOL more nonsense from Obama and the left the 'non-producing' acreage where drilling is permitted is land that oil companies are ignoring? That is simply not true. years of exploration and federal permitting must be completed before that leased land can yields oil. 4,700 new holes are being drilled on current onshore leases.

Heres a list of the steps to even bring oil to our market it takes about 10 years under current restrictions

But you're claiming that we need to drill drill drill. Apparently we already are. 4700 new holes you just said. non-issue.

There is plenty of oil in the US to sustain us until we can perfect other alternatives.

We went to Laurel, Mississippi not too long ago and there are oil wells in various neighborhoods in between the houses on small lots. It doesn't take acre upon acre to acccess.

They should let the states decide the conditions and if they can drill or not. not some lease deal that takes years to meet with wild and crazy conditions.

One of our problems is refineries we don't have enough.

I am a mormon.  If I don't use mormons believe, those my beliefs only.
I do not go to church haven't for thirty years.
There are other mormons on this site. So if I have misspoken about the beliefs. I welcome their input.
I am not perfect and never will be. I do strive to be true to myself. I do my best to stay true to the mormon faith. Thank for careing and if you don't peace be with you.

They do not let states decide if they can drill for oil or not, I'm saying the government should let the state decide, no kidding states have no control over government land. most of the oil spots have been decleared wild life refuge or something like that from the Clintons. that should be givin back to the states as well.

Very true along with nuclear power plants. if we had 90% of our energy comming from nuclear power like France, and if we allowed states to regulate oil drilling we more then likely would be exporting oil. cheaper oil prices, a stable dollar, job growth and a better trade balance. insted we have left wing liberals calling the shots, people like Al Gore and his house that uses twice as much power as the White House, on his private jet flying all over America telling us the world is going to end in 2012 or what ever because of man made global warming.

Maybe instead of wasting billions in wars that are fought to protect pipelines, they could use that money to invest in solar technology. Then you won't have to fight any more pointless wars, unless someone tries to do a Mr. Burns (block out the sun)
