    No it would not because oil is something the world depends on to function. You heat your home. Correct? Would you forgo heating your house with anything fossil fuel related this winter to make a political statement?

    It's kind of discouraging to know some people actually think this way.

    Until we have a viable replacement, ready to be distributed and used like modern fuel products,
    Oil is the only thing keeping about 80 % of the Humans alive on this planet.
    So while calamity's statement might be discouraging to you, that does not make it factually incorrect.
    We simply cannot feed everyone without oil products!

    The right is fighting against alternative energy at every turn.

    Would you rather save an ecosystem no one lives near or see about 3 billion people die and or starve?

    THere is no viable alternative to oil and other fossil fuels right now. Are you a fan of nuclear reactors?

    It doesn't have to be one or the other. There is no dire need to extract oil from the Arctic.

    Please point out the alternative energy proposed that would allow the planting of a 200 acre field....tomorrow!
    There is some hope in the form of man made hydrocarbon fuels being use as storage, but without storage,
    alternatives like wind and solar, are too low density, and irregular to help much.
