Drill Here, Drill Now, Pay Less, Why Wait?

Author: Brad  |  Category: Boardman Views, Family, Jobs Careers, Pay Less for Gas

Does it really take rocket science to realize that while we’re trying to figure out how to cool down the planet we still have to function?

Anyone who’s read much of Boardman Country realizes that I am not a participant in the Global Warming Scam. On the contrary, I’m stomping down the biggest carbon footprint possible without straining myself.

That doesn’t mean I deny that global temperatures rise…and fall (and by the way, they’ve been falling more than rising recently, especially here). I simply don’t buy into the lie that mean old mankind is causing it or can do anything about it.

I know, I know, now that even the scientists admit the temperatures have actually been coming down some in recent years, we’re supposed to re-label it all to: Climate Change.

Guess what. NO!

Here in Boardman Country they’re stuck with “Global Warming”…Scam.

But just put all that aside for a moment. Let’s pretend that…alright…”Climate Change,” in all it’s “reality” is totally man-induced. SO WHAT?

While the “Wizards of Smart” (Thanks Rush!) figure out how to “fix” it, do we not still have to survive? Function? Live our lives? Yes, we do. And isn’t it much harder to do that using, what the heck, $5 per gallon gas?

The folks who have for so long now prevented offshore oil exploration and drilling in ANWR, the verbal minority, have helped us all achieve a collective shooting of ourselves in the foot. They say, “Even if we were to drill now, it would take ten years to do us any good at the pump.” I say, GET ON WITH IT!

Those same folks are the ones who are always asking us in their blubbering tones, “Oh, dear, what kind of a world are we gonna leave our kids and grandkids?” That’s the question politicians ask you when they’re trying to “guilt” you into seeing things their way. Well, if we’d get off our rears and get to drilling and building refinery and yes, nuclear capacity NOW, we might just leave them with less than $15 per gallon gas, as well as an abundance of CLEAN, GREEN nuclear power.

Heck, go ahead and develop all your new highfalutin hybrid green solar-arrayed, wind-driven, re-usin’-your-darn-grocery-bags, planet-savin’ technologies. But while you’re doing all that, let’s get on with what we already have and know so we can at least get to our jobs! Drill here, drill now, pay less, why wait?

I you’re one of the 74% of Americans who support this no-brainer concept, click here to learn more and to raise your whispering voice so that it can actually be heard clear back there in that other Washington. We know they’re not listening so we have to start shouting loudly enough to make them LISTEN OR GET OUT!

Finally, the governor of Alaska is on record as saying that the actual amount of land that would be necessary to go in and access the ANWR oil reserves would be a patch of ground less than the size of LAX!

Like I said: No-Brainer.

    You go Brad! I have been saying how can we use all of the oil that took millions of years to make? This whole gas thing is to get the oil companies more bucks… it is a real big scam as far as I am concerned!

    Hi Brad!
    I don’t necessarily consider myself a “tree hugger” but I do believe there is a lot more to this than drill, drill, drill. first of all the oil companies already have a LOT of federal leases they aren’t even trying to explore. As for off shore drilling? I certainly think that if China can come across the Ocean and set up drilling rigs that we should have more of a right to that than they do. Also, I tend to think the AWAR situation is way over blown and we probably should go into there.
    Personally I kind of like the idea of your HHO hydro driven battery engine and get totally away from dependence on oil driven equipment.
    This topic needs to be discussed vigorously and Democrats and Republicans need to focus on the long term and not there childish self interests.
    Keep up your good dialogue.

    Hey Roy!

    Great to have you weighing in on this topic. Actually, it’s always fun having family get into the topic no matter what it is. 🙂 So thanks for the comment.

    When it comes to drilling, I really think it’s a matter of “if the shoe fits, wear it.” If you’re an oil company and you CAN drill, what are you waiting for, an engraved invitation?

    If you’re a government and you’re not allowing companies to drill, DO YOU HEAR US? We said, “NOW!”

    Whatever it takes, get on with it.

    I will be writing more in a regular post on the whole water4gas thing. I’m convinced it’s real, but I’m not yet convinced that it’s something most folks can do in a weekend in their garage. 🙁

    But if gas prices keep rising, I’m sure that the HHO thing will get easier to do.

    Thanks Roy! Talk soon!

    I think the US should drill in order to reduce it’s reliance on overseas oil. However I don’t think drilling will reduce the price of gas, not even in ten years time when the wells start pumping. The proposed new wells have not been tapped before because they are going to expensive to produce oil from.

    If they were cheap to drill they would have been drilled 20 or 30 years ago before anyone cared about the environment.

    Thanks, polybore, for taking the time to comment. I certainly appreciate that!

    I do, though, happen to have a relative who’s been in the oil drilling industry. It’s unbelievable how much the technology has changed in the past 20 years. These advances have, I believe, resulted in less expensive WAYS to get at the oil.

    Here nor there, though. Supply and demand continues to operate and will, I believe, have its effect.

    You have raised a very good point in this blog post.Global warming is a problem of all communities and societies.If it will move with same pace then we will failed to save this beautiful world for our next generation.
