    I just poked around in some things the other day. Alaska has enough oil to supply the US at the projected increased rate of growth for 200 years. Supply is kept extremely artificially low.
    Oil supply, or gas supply? The difference is orders of magnitude.

    Also, no one ever proved that {insert noun here} wasn't a pedophile.
    I'm all for debate man, but that almost fails to qualify as an argument.

    The fun part is finding the answer that's most true to you.

Much of the pain at the pump is self-inflicted.

    Deciding whether or not to extract oil from the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge will not be decided on an environmental basis. The amount of oil contained in it is fairly small (only 9 months worth, I think), and the amount of infrastructure needed to extract and transport said oil would cost far more than the amount of revenue the oil would generate.

    Come on, this is America we are talking about. Do you honestly think "tree huggers" would have that much influence?

    Also, an oil-price related economic collapse would not be confined to the USA. What do you think the rest of the world's infrastructure runs on, pixie dust? Europe imports a large amount of its energy and although china, india, and the USA contain large amounts of coal, it is nowhere near the amount needed to replace the petroleum currently used.

    Successful societies will be those that maximize the economic productivity, food and water they get for each unit of energy. Not those that squeeze the last drop of oil out of their lands and waters.

    With US workers living in bigger houses and driving further in big vehicles, a lot of energy gets used before the day's economic productivity even begins. Our food supply requires a lot of energy-intensive fertilizer & transportation, while we've depleted or contaminated so much water that lots of places are considering energy-intensive desalination or long distance transport for their future water. We need to change our direction.

    We can either start changing our ways now or we can wait until after we've caused even more destruction chasing cheap energy. The only advantage to waiting is that we'll get all the benefits and someone else (our descendents) will pay the costs.

    I have heard 80 years at the current rate of growth, but that was a while ago. They may have found more. Either way, it is a long time for us to finish curing our addiction of oil. They claim a 10% profit margin. Damn if they are selling that much then DANG!
