    Environmentally Sound Energy Independence
    By Sarah Palin

    On this holiest of days for EcoLiberals, how about if Americans celebrate Earth Day with responsible energy development that leads to greater independence and conservation?

    There’s no better way for President Obama and his administration to celebrate Earth Day than to embrace a real, environmentally sound commitment to energy independence instead of relying on foreign countries that lack environmental safeguards. One aspect of the “all-of-the-above” approach I have been discussing for years involves, of course, the necessity to “drill, baby, drill.”

    It’s no secret that throughout America, including the very wealthy state of Alaska, we find a storehouse of natural resources that God so benevolently dumped underfoot, just waiting to be tapped. ANWR, for example, is screaming to be used to help bring prosperity and national security to America. Indeed, there is an inherent link between energy and prosperity and energy and security. On this day, as many are focused on preserving the planet, environmentalists need not fear that the land or wildlife would suffer from the wise decision to drill here. As Alaskans know, ANWR is not some luxurious vacation spot teeming with Bambi and friends frolicking through waterfalls and flower-strewn mountainsides, as environmentalist fundraising advertisements depict it. It is a vast, remote, desolate, frozen area available to be used with a tiny drilling footprint to bring the country closer to what is clearly needed: commonsense, money-saving, job-producing energy independence. >>>

    >>> What better way to walk the environmental walk than to take the lead rather than sitting back while less environmentally conscious countries develop resources for us—and hold us over the barrel in the process?

    America isn’t the only country that celebrates Earth Day, but we are the most exceptional. It’s time for the greatest nation on earth to tap into its full potential, and one surefire way to do so is to tap into what is beneath this earth. Energy independence awaits, and her companions are national security and financial prosperity.

    Sarahs got more cojones than all the GOP put together. What a great candidate for Secretary of Energy. If only the Mitt had a brain ... the excitement that would stir with such an announcement!

    If a statement is true is it still considered sarcasm?

    Energy Independence: $1.8 Billion Oil Bakken Crude Express Pipeline Planned From North Dakota to Oklahoma

    One of the few bright spots in America’s energy situation is the development of the Bakken Shale oil in North Dakota. The only problem is a lack of a pipeline to get this oil to the hungry markets. That’s about to change though.

    >>>

    This is great news and a real success story.

    According to Oil-Price.Net, a leading source for up to the minute oil pricing, there are an estimated 2 trillion barrels of oil locked up in shale deposits. This oil will go a long way towards making the United States energy independent.

    We use an estimated 18.8 million barrels of oil a day and produce around 9.1 million barrels a day. America is number 3 in world wide oil production.

    Don’t let anyone tell you that America can’t become energy independent, and stay energy independent.

    All we have to do is demand it.

    GAO: Recoverable Oil in Colorado, Utah, Wyoming 'About Equal to Entire World’s Proven Oil Reserves'

    (CNSNews.com) - The Green River Formation, a largely vacant area of mostly federal land that covers the territory where Colorado, Utah and Wyoming come together, contains about as much recoverable oil as all the rest the world’s proven reserves combined, an auditor from the Government Accountability Office told Congress on Thursday.

    The GAO testimony said that the federal government was in “a unique position to influence the development of oil shale” because the Green River deposits were mostly beneath federal land.

    <snip>

    “The Rand Corporation, a nonprofit research organization, estimates that 30 to 60 percent of the oil shale in the Green River Formation can be recovered,” Mittal told the subcommittee. “At the midpoint of this estimate, almost half of the 3 trillion barrels of oil would be recoverable. This is an amount about equal to the entire world's proven oil reserves.”

    In her oral statement before the subcommittee, Mittal said that developing the shale oil would create wealth and jobs for the country ...

    We have enough to supply the whole world with energy for the next 300 years. Now, just imagine what that would do for our economy? We would be able to pay off our debts, and we would become the world's biggest lender and not the world's biggest debtor. The only ones that are preventing us from becoming the world's biggest economy are the dipsticks in Washington.
