I did not know conservatives hated Uncle Ben. we have enough oil and gas for a hundred years or more. Don't you think in a decade or so we can have nuclear fusion or other sources of energy. Don't get too excited. Utah could handle an energy boom and in fact it is. The energy situation is why the US is not doing worse under Obama. Saudi Arabia and some other countries are contributing to those wishing to obstruct drilling and fracking.

"Saudi Arabia and some other countries are contributing to those wishing to obstruct drilling and fracking."
Some citation please?

"We have enough oil and gas for a hundred years or more." (Citation needed) Does this include the guestimates on oil shale?

"Don't you think in a decade or so we can have nuclear fusion or other sources of energy."

Magically appearing, because we haven't seriously tried anything new since nuke power in 1954?
Little tweeks to existing technology but no real leaps. Meanwhile the need for more power for
every facet of our lives is rising exponentially every year.

Time to stop digging for our energy.

Under Obama (through the EPA), we're about to find out how bad and how expensive life can be when coal that is used to fire electric power plants is restricted. Sadly, many people have no clue how much coal and oil (petroleum based products) add to our lives in a positive way. We're about to find out.

Doubt me?

Consider the words of our Dear Leader:

"You know, when I was asked earlier about the issue of coal, uh, you know — Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would NECESSARILY SKYROCKET. Even regardless of what I say about whether coal is good or bad. Because I’m capping greenhouse gases, coal power plants, you know, natural gas, you name it — whatever the plants were, whatever the industry was, uh, they would have to retrofit their operations. That will cost money. They will pass that money on to consumers (emphasis mine)." -Barack Obama

BTW, this is why Obama and other leftists must, at all costs, push the myth of AGW.
