Re: OT: arctic drilling

What a close vote!  51%!  
Drilling in the arctic is an abominable idea.  At peak production it  could 
only possibly provide a measly 2% of our country's oil consumption.   The oil 
industry isn't even interested in drilling there because it's not worth  their 
effort.  So much more can be gained simply by conservation and  imposing CAFE 
standards on vehicles.  It's so sad.
Jim is right.  When this issue hits the House, we need to call our  
congress-people and put pressure on them.  They will be up for re-election  in 2006.

Your  President should be happy. Raping Alaska has been high on his 
agenda since  he and daddy went belly up with Zapata Oil. Problem, of 
course, is the  House. House members, no matter how rapacious 
philosophically, still have  to face reelection every 2 years. These are 
normally gutless people [Tom  Lay excepted] who will wishy when faced 
with any constituency washy. And  the House has already announced it is 
not happy with the Senate's budget.  So, who knows where it may go. I 
don't think it's a slam dunk especially  if the pressure is kept on the 
lobbyist's  patsies.
