It’s an old topic, I know. It doesn’t seem so urgent now that gas prices aren’t quite so high, but with recent talk of a plot to replace the dollar in oil transactions, this article in CNN Money says it should be.
Honestly, I’ve never understood the argument against drilling in ANWR and other protected places. Let’s say we eventually run out of oil. Do these environmentalists think they are going to be able to stop the public clamoring for oil from ravaging these places to get every last drop as quickly as possible?
Why not do it now while the need is not quite so urgent and the people worried about the effect it may have on the environment can have some say in the way it’s done.
