  •  Yourspecialkid: If you measure your intelligence in diplomas, that shows why you struggle to follow a simple train of logic. Anyone can get a degree ANYONE.

    The US has very little oil. Only 21 billion barrels on reserve, that's enough for 3 years. And drilling? Primary recovery only yields 10-20% of whats being tapped. Before we can produce the oil Americans need to feed their addiction, the market will be bone dry. In 2008 we imported 9212 THOUSAND barrels the US does not have that amount of oil domestically at its disposable to wean itself completely from foreign dependence without GREEN ENERGY.

  • That is of the KNOWN oil supplies! There are several other HUGE oil deposits--I believe there is one in the upper midwest that was just discovered, which may extend our supplies. What we need is more refineries.

  • Fortunately we're looking for other forms of energy.

  • which will take how many years--to locate, build, locate and establish? The Dems should have done what they said they were going to do some 30 years ago, and actually work towards "green" options. We're still at square one scratching our heads as to the best alternatives! That D.C. for yah!

  • Yup. Many people seem to think oil is an infinite resource LMAO.

    Its bad for our environment and bad for our domestic security. If I had my way all cars would be electric or hybrid by 2020

  • And if Obama's Cap & Trade Bill passes, I wonder how much plugging in your Fisher Price electric car will cost....never mind the cost of batteries and their hazardous disposal fees!

    How does oil affect our domestic security?!

  • Actually, oil is being created all the time. It comes from organic material. The time we live in is just not super oil creating time though.

    SRiveroC should know that electric or hybrid cars won't fix the problem. Petroleum is used in many products such as deodorant, plastics, inks, eyeglasses, tires, paraffin wax, lubricants, cleaning products, heart valves, and bubble gum and road asphalt.

  • My hubby has an electric car at his work. It goes 45 mph max and has to be recharged every night and requires a special electrical outlet. I am just wondering where you think we will all stop for a "fill up."

    What do you think creates most of the electricity here in the US? Coal. So you want to simply trade one resource for another.

    LoriKeet, about the domestic security thing. She is just quoting BO. Remember that is one of the reasons we need the cap & trade.....barf barf........
