Whoever said nothing good comes from Wyoming?

3 Jul

According to an article in the Little Chicago Review, both senators from Wyoming, and both republicans, I might add, have proposed legislation that supports mining coaland oil shale in an effort to reduce American dependence on foreign oil.

The US consumes 25% of the world oil supply, and there is very little that is going to change that over the next 10 years.  Even with alternative fuel options, there are 10’s of millions of cars on the road that will need gasoline from oil, and the mere fact that fascist environmentalists want electric cars does not mean that the working middle class and the poor are going to go out in droves and buy them.  We will continue to drive our middle class and poor cars that get 20 miles to the gallon, and run only on fossil fuel. 

A sensible approach to the mess we have gotten ourselves into is to drill and mine US oil, and buy and refine US oil.
