    The whole point of the created global warming debate is so that enough ocean levels will rise, melting the arctic. Why? Because there is an INSANE amount of oil under there.

    Keep people dependent upon oil, get the arctic melted/melting, and hit their jackpot. Money at the expense of our planet. I guess we have no problem with that.

    Yeah, the horror. More oil becomes available at a time when liberals howl about "peak oil." I imagine the rain on that parade must be perplexing.

    Hard to imagine how it would be any more or less catastrophic than in the Gulf of Mexico.
    Well, wasn't that bad enough?

    Nobody lives up in the Arctic. So...who cares if oil spills there?

    Yes, I support any measures that are cleaner in the interim. And dismiss your opinion of renewables as a black hole. There's still opportunities to develop new renewables. With the proper dillegence, the US has done it before. We just need an American president to do what Kennedy did.

    Oh ok, I hadn't considered that. No worries.

    Would it bother you that the oil companies knew they were warming the planet, and it was their design to create the debate? That way oil could still be consumed, leaving the arctic bare to exploit.
