Is not drilling for oil in the Gulf of Mexico realistic?

Is this part of obama’s plan to redistribute wealth to foreign countries? obama and his administration has essentiall shutdown all "energy" uses whether it be oil, gas, coal, or nuclear. If the wind doesn’t blow or the sun doesn’t shine then it tough luck…obama is intentionly driving the "price" of a gallon of gas skyward.

    Cuba, China, Brazil, all are going full speed ahead drilling in the Gulf. The only one not drilling is the US. Obama in fact approved a large loan to Brazil for more drilling off shore. Someone please explain how forcing the US to spend billions for imported oil is a good thing.

    BP was a foreign entity that cared not a lick for our environment.

    I thought BP was a foreign company that was redistribution our oil from the Bush Administration.

    It is realistic in that, one way or another, that will eventually be the reality of the situation.

    Whether we abandon hydrocarbons as a fuel source now, pursue them until Global Peak Oil makes them cost ineffective or subsidize their extraction until the wells go dry, the drilling will definitely end.

    All things considered, I’d prefer that transition go as smoothly as possible.

  6. Big Peter Says:

    in as much as they are drilling for oil on the Gulf, your question is illustrative of the conservative inability to be honest and critically think.

  7. Thomas Says:

    No, if we don’t someone else will. This is how a critical thinking person knows that it isn’t about the environment, for the left.

    The Chinese are not stopping.

    (I’ll bet that they are really concerned about the environment.)

    Sure if we want to go back to 4+ dollars a gallon for gas.
