Wash Post Writeup of Land Politics

  • 1 Comments

Karl Vick has a good writeup in the Washington Post today about what I have called Land Politics. The long and short of his article is that the Bush administration’s lobbyist-backed quest to drill for oil everywhere is damaging the Republican Party in local communities in the Rocky Mountain West. Check out the story here.

One thought on “Wash Post Writeup of Land Politics

  1. It is not the fact that drilling is occurring. It is the fact that cheap drilling is happening and they are being allowed to from the legislation that the pubs passed. Drilling can be done cleanly, but the problem is that environmental friendly drilling is about 2-10x the price. So W. and his pub buddies passed laws that allowed for dirty drilling. Much of that oil on the roan can be gotten with slant drilling. What the dems need to do, is allow the drilling to occur,but with best available equipment (as opposed to best costs equipment).

    But even with that, we would be wise to hold back from drilling everywhere. Oil is much more useful for chemical stock, fertilizer and plastics than it is as fuel. Sadly, we currently use it for that. I would rather burn up the rest of the worlds stock for that, while working towards bringing cheap electricity back (via nukes and alternative).
