Re: Addicted to Regulation

Again, the false premise is we have enough oil to substitute importation from the Middle East, when the facts of geology tell any objective observer we don't, despite the data puffery written here. Practically the entire North Slope of Alaska is already the national petroleum reserve, and the rest under development right now. Why is this not enough now? Why hasn't a gas pipeline been built along the current oil pipeline? It's simple: the oil companies can't devise a profitable incentive to build it even with doubled prices for the product, so they just burn it off at the well head. Conservationists aren't against this either so shelve that fallacy for another day. The ANWR straw man only works for true believers who have never looked at a seismic map of the world. Theirs is a world of fiction. Of course they deny global warming too so this is right up that blind alley. Dead end governor.
