Oh please. Everyone knows the U.S. Geological Survey is just another Soros front group.

Interesting parallel to Palin herself. Once you get below the surface you realize there's nothing there.

Maybe the brutal dictator of Canada has been slant-drilling it to pay for his lavish ice palaces and snowballs of mass destruction.

to be fair, there is something there - it just turned out to be gas.

Bonus points for both of you

Gas instead of oil?

So it'll still be drill baby drill, just not for oil, but gas.
 
2010-10-27 11:31:25 AM  
Damn Maverick oil.
 
2010-10-27 11:31:44 AM  
Well that's it then. Sell them back to Russia. Maybe we can use the $7.2 million to give some poor investment banker the bonus he so richly deserves.

But I got an email that said we should cut off all contact with the middle east and live on the oil in Alaska for a hundred years! Are you saying we can't do that?

Not too surprising considering the exploration results in NPR-A and NPR-B. But there is a sh*t-ton of natural gas up there, which should be developed and will be developed eventually. However, a pipeline will need to be built to get all that NG to market.
 
2010-10-27 11:34:49 AM  
Well, that's the last we'll hear of drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

Sarah Palin was recently subducted into the upper mantle and reabsorbed into Mother Earth. I get it.

"Changing World Technologies" (google them) makes all oil scare threads Moot.
America needs to belly up to the bar, invest in the company and keep them from going overseas.
 
2010-10-27 11:37:20 AM  
Ummm - I think the oil was over here, no wait over here, maybe..oh never mind, it seems to be gone now

2010-10-27 11:37:58 AM  
Well that's good and lulzy.

And here I was hoping we could pump that red, white and blue oil and violate long standing trade agreements to keep it all to ourselves.

I bet some Republican comes out tomorrow and says the reason the reserves went down is that we haven't drilled enough and we still need to wreck ANWR.

"amount of conventional, undiscovered oil in the National Petroleum Reserve"

Conventional oil? There's unconventional undiscovered oil?

The Lord will provide us with all of the oil we will need.

Not an unusual thing to happen as exploration drilling in a region further defines what is under the ground. ANWR reserves are actually a theory as only one well has been drilled.

Whaddaya expect from an 'ol whore who delights in killing wolves and other innocent creatues. Send here back to the abyss of hell, from whence she came!

moops: Well, that's the last we'll hear of drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

Bad headline subby.

This isn't the ANRW site or even all of Alaska, this in the US Navy National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska.

http://www.adn.com/2010/10/26/1519692/report-slashes-estimate-of-amount.html

And people aren't too sure of the estimate - "It seems somewhat controversial to me," said Dick Garrard, geoscience manager for FEX, the Alaska subsidiary of a Canadian energy firm called Talisman."

And apparently theres a ton of gas there.

I'd drill in those ancient, frigid, Alaskan wetlands.

What exactly did Sarah Palin do to earn all your hate? I think I was absent that day. Seems like a nice lady from what I've seen. Plus she looks like Tina Fey.

Good thing we based our Nation's long term energy plan around domestic drilling. Imagine if we based it entire around importing oil from foreign countries that don't like us much?

drill Baby drill.

I'm bet the oil just quit flowing about halfway through the pipe when the pressure was too much... and got a book deal.

Ex-Governor Palin. She quit, therefore she has no right to the "former" honorific.
