The US trade deficit would almost vaporize if we got off imported energy.

Sorry, but the Globe and Mail is full of it. They ran a horrible article that was chock full of errors.

People look for what they want to believe. If they can't find it, they'll create the story anyway.

This happens over and over in the area of energy (especially related to oil.) Exaggerations are common in these types of stories.

Don't we want oil independence? I do. Isn't that what a lot on the Left say we go to war for, oil. We can nip that ignorant assumption in the bud.

News of oil independence would help our economy in my opinion. Especially with rising gas prices and unemployment. Lots of jobs can be created with another oil boom.

I love oil. It's what keeps the world moving. There is no denying that fact.

Shooting the messenger is not an argument.

Check the EIA summary yourself. We have lots of oil and gas.

These increases demonstrate the possibility of an expanding
role for domestic natural gas and crude oil in meeting both current and projected U.S. energy demands.

Those of Environmentalism cringe at these facts.

If the fracking contaminates the water table, will you pay to relocate everyone in the affected area, and compensate them for damages?

Silly. We will all pay for it. And we all pay for stuff that is out of our hands, by way of taxes, that we find disturbing and/or unworthy.

I've seen Gasland and that is truly some amazing video. The companies have insurance and they should compensate those affected by fracking and be held accountable for each offense. While also finding a better/safer way to prevent contaminating our water tables and destroying natural environments.

I found this story: Natural gas operations violate the Clean Water Act in West Virginia

That being said, I believe in oil independence and driving my truck everyday. Use what we've got, and at the same time pour money back into natural energy resources like sun, wind, and water. Keeping in mind that it takes existing natural resources to produce clean energy products.
