RE: [DMCForum] Re: the EV1... vs Diesel

I already replied to the numbers for drilling ANWR and other places.  But,
why do we need to stop using oil?  If we completely, 100%, stop using
foreign oil why wouldn't that be ok?  Any other future source of power we
find, unless we can discover the ZPM and it is truly harmless, will still
have some people complaining about how that is endangering us or people are
doing back room deals to get rich or that someone made too much money from


I read a study not too long ago, but can't find it right now, where they are
saying oil is not just from dinos but is constantly being made by the earth.
If it is a renewable energy source, why not use it?  Even more so, if it is
renewable and does so on its own?

Yeah, I can go for that.

But keep in mind that we already do drill for oil and NG here. There
are 3 oil derricks within 3 miles of my house (I live in Houston). 
>From what I've read (sorry, I can't find the report right now), the
amount of oil expected to come out of ANWR would only compose about
25% of our domestic petroleum production. That means it would only be
a 50% increase, domestically speaking.

I'm not against drilling in ANWR, but I do think it's a very small
band-aid on a very big problem.
