I think its a good thing along the Atlantic, but think the site in Alaska should be left alone.

I'm not super well versed on the issue, but when I was looking into it during the election, I recall thinking-- so, we're going to spend a lot of money, put the environment at risk to some degree, for what kind of payout? Is there a guaranteed payout?

I kind of feel like the money we're spending on this might be better put toward the research to make alternate fuel sources viable.

I'm not happy. Our money for exploration should go into solar, wind, hydro.

I am not pleased.

If only the however-many-trillion dollars that have been spent on Bush's (and now Obama's) oil wars had been put to good use...maybe we would/could have discovered a totally new type of energy. I hate that Obama is compromising with the right wingers (for probably no concessions) and throwing our good money after bad. He's upsetting his base. Not good.
