    typical... (i) politicizing a disaster; (ii) ignoring the risks inherent in what she now proposes; (iii) ignores that all along she and her cronies have wanted offshore drilling as well

    Can't wait for them to open up ANWR and have the next disaster destroy that, too, all while mocking the idea of developing more "green" alternatives

    Her and the standard 46% of Americans who are right along with her. Next time you're at a party with 20 people, know that 9 of them are likely in tune with Palin on this...and half of them think Saddam bombed WTC...:confused:

    In a CBS News poll conducted earlier this month, 46 percent of Americans said they supported increasing offshore drilling for oil, marking a drop since 2008. That support has changed little in recent weeks: 45 percent said they were in favor of more offshore drilling in the new poll, while 46 percent said the associated costs and risks are too great.

    Poll: 70% Say BP Handling Oil Spill Badly - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

    esit:
    Don't know what's scarier...that number or this one:

    A bipartisan national survey has found that by a margin of 53 percent to 35 percent, Americans oppose proposals to drill for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

    we need to get the flunk OFF of oil. It creates nothing but pollution, and war. It funds terrorists.

    Its sucks so bad that a person like Palin, with such power over weak minded people is feeding them slogans of backward thinking. Instead of thinking abouy the future and pushing americans to rise above challenges to lead the world.

    She, along with Limbaugh, and Beck are the real driving forces behind our nation becoming a disaster of a place, and thats not hyperbole. I honestly heard Limbaugh say the other day that oil spills, like the one in the gulf are no big deal, and that sit natural? WTF? I hear Beck describe anyone who thinks differently than he does as a "Nazi"... even jewish people who were holocaust survivors....a guy who is against socialistic policy, yet boasts that he is a self educated man who learned it all in a PUBLIC LIBRARY. A man who compared the term "Empathy" to Hitler's genocide...

    The conservative spokespeople are morons.

    Onshore drilling disaster? :confused2:

    When Chernobyl lit up the evening sky, did the world shun nuclear energy? I'm not trying to slight the tragedy that's going on currently, but the world needs energy, and that's not changing anytime soon. If more lands were open to drilling, then we could arguably harvest supplies more safely. From some of what I'm reading, the deeper the water, the higher the risk of incident. The point is, oil is needed. It's going to get drilled, and it's going to come from somewhere. The right track is to have a balanced approach where enough land is open to supply it, but not too much so as to deincentivize the search for an alternative. Shouting that oil starts wars, pollutes, supports terrorism, etc. might all be true, but where is the alternative?

    PS - I'm a big on hydrogen personally.

    People are stupid. That's a known fact. You say flashy things that make vague sense as long as you don't think about it and stupid people will clap and clamour. Unfortunately, that's what garners the most votes so that's what our politicians use. It's no longer the best and the brightest, it's the people who don't mind being on the cover of People magazine and can spew mindless rhetoric on command.
    Weeeeeeee!

    RW: Most people aren't shunning oil. But many of us did want -- and still do want -- more focus on developing alternative energy. The gulf disaster is just one more example of why this is necessary.

    TBrady: absolutely right, though you omitted what i think is the more recent phenomenon of wanting "somebody like me" as our national leaders -- my impression is that in the past people sought leaders who were more capable, more intelligent, more qualified.

    Most conservatives support "all of the above" solutions. We don't like omitting one thing because it goes against a political agenda. We want off foreign oil and don't see an alternative to oil in the near term, so we want domestic oil. I'm sure once hydrogen fuel cell cars meet safety standards for use you'll see a strong push there. If not, shame on the politicians (well, even more shame).

    The only issue with that is there is no domestic oil in the near-term. At least not in any quantity that would make a dent in our overall consumption, which is why many of the drilling ideas proposed by Republicans (like drilling in ANWR) may sound good in theory, but in reality do little to solve the problem.

    Then where do you start? You have to ramp up somewhere. Similar to immigration reform... there's this call for "comprehensive" reform for several years, which basically means throw the kitchen sink in and you have a good excuse to do nothing.

    Raise CAFE standards. Construction of new nuclear power plants. Implement a gasoline tax, use profits to subsidize development of renewable energy infrastructure and technology. More construction and funding of public transportation in urban areas.

    I agree with some of those points but are those any faster than ramping up domestic oil production?

    Maybe most conservatives do support all alternatives, but I've sure heard a lot of hostility towards "green" solutions from the right -- and I'm referring to friends, to folks here and to various pundits in the media

    (that hostility is even greater when proposed solutions involve the government)

    The first three, yes. The last point, I'm not sure as it varies.

    Just try constructing a nuke plant the left wing will go insane, we should have started looking for alternatives as soon as WWII ended, the oil situation is disgusting, we buy and make billionaires from a race of people that want us all dead, Imagine the jokes the Arabs and the rest of those bastards over in The Middle East have over the stupid Americans.

    Paul McCartney, Sean Penn, Al Gore and Nancy Pelosi will never ever allow a New Nuke Plant, John Fonda Kerry will never allow Windmills.

    The hositility, I believe, is generally fueled by the underlying agenda. Carbon credits yield a new tax on the energy industry which, it's believed, will be passed down to the consumer. Most green energy solutions are currently less cost effective than fossil fuel alternatives (except for nuclear). The domestic green energy business is not that robust; the majority of materials would come from China which would increase our trade deficit. I don't think it's an aversion to clean energy, it's an aversion to the proposed methods of implementation that might hurt the economy further.

    EDIT: I also think it's interesting the biggest winners would be the multinational corporations that liberals often decry. GE/NBC would make quite a bit of money either via importing and implementing the expensive solutions or by accepting federal subsidies.
