A blog about US politics has this comment:
The time for talk is over. We can't drill our way out of this and both his and Gore's plan point us in the right direction. We need to just do it.I got news for him. If we can't drill our way out of our immediate problems, there is no immediate solution. Why? It is a matter of logistics and infrastructure. Our experience with the transition from wood to coal and coal to oil is instructive. Those transitions took about 75 to 100 years. Why? Whole new methods of production and infrastructure had to be developed. It is a problem of capital and logistics. Take our automotive fleet. It turns over at the rate of about 6% a year.
Let me point out again that no one is saying to JUST drill! But to do everything BUT drill is simply, well f'n idiotic!
