I think I'll check out information of Indiana allowing dumping to lake.
Sounds bad to me. Curious at your shot at Canadian oil though. Would
you prefer it came from Saudi Arabia, Libya, Iran etc. Maybe if Dick Durban
and Dems in congress would allow more domestic drilling we wouldn't need
to get this additional oil from Canada.
John, I want no oil use at all. The idea is not to just get away from foreign oil, but all oil use. The fact that we are expanding many of our U.S. refineries at this time just shows we have no intention of finding decent alternatives. Big oil is hoping Americans will completely forget about alternatives by providing our own oil at a decent price. Does American oil burn any cleaner? NO.
Unfortunately, getting more of our own oil has brought about drilling in the Arctic refuge. Americans overwhelmingly vetoed that idea for years, but like the backdoor draft in Iraq, the Bush administration has found a backdoor way for Shell to spoil that area also, a travesty, since there are many places in Alaska that are still available for drilling. There is no reason to drill in the refuge except for low costs. To further thwart the enticement of cheaper gasoline prices, and to get the green movement going, John Dingell is proposing a tax on gasoline. It seems thats the only thing that gets Americans moving on an issue, is to hit them in their pocketbook. Sad but true.
As far as foreign oil, this is the first time ever a president opened up our own stores of oil but never stopped incoming foreign oil at the same time. The idea behind opening our own stores is to force prices down on the foreign imported stuff by stopping the imported stuff, but not so with Bush. What has been happening is big corporations are getting the break on lower, cheaper prices of domestic stuff, while we pay the high prices at the pump for the foreign imported oil and to refill our coffers. So the little guy is actually funding lower prices for the big guys. Nice huh? Levin has been fighttng with the Bush administration over this for at least 4 years. Not everyone is paying high dollar for gas that's for sure. The only way the world is going to clean up is to stop the greed for the crude.
