All of it is off limits. In addition to the four areas I mentioned, 85% of our coastal oil areas are off limits, and hundreds of other areas.
I live in Florida. There is a bipartisan consensus to oppose off shore drilling. Jeb Bush, Charlie Crist, and Bob Martinez are all against it... So, it's not only the left or Dems opposing it..The Reps are afraid a spill would kill the beaches on the West Coast and touriam and home prices along with it...

You have some folks arguing that we have reached peak oil...You have some folks arguing that there are trillions of barrels of oil to be tapped... I suspect the truth is in the middle... To me stuff like science and medicine should be non-ideological...
