    From your article:

    That's exactly what I've been saying, that drill baby drill is nothing but a campaign slogan.

    Further from your source:

    "The total production from ANWR would be between 0.4 and 1.2 percent of total world oil consumption in 2030. Consequently, ANWR oil production is not projected to have a large impact on world oil prices."

    It also has nothing to counter the fact that we passed peak oil in this country in 1971, regardless of who as in control of the government.

    Ah, now we are back to the old, tired, and debunked America only has 2-6% of the worlds oil....Crapola....

    MYTH: The U.S. only has a small percentage (from 2-6%) of the world’s oil supplies, and since oil is a global commodity, our increased production won’t affect prices much if at all.
    FACT: This estimate of 2-6% of the world’s oil supplies does not hold up to scrutiny.
    In oil shale alone, found in the Green River Formation in parts of Utah, Colorado, and Wyoming, the U.S. has approximately 800 billion barrels of recoverable oil, or over three times the proven reserves of Saudi Arabia. This comes from a midpoint estimate in a 2005 RAND study done at the request of the Department of Energy, and a higher end estimate puts the number at over one trillion barrels.
    Furthermore, there are vast areas of the United States and its outer continental shelf where it is illegal to even look for oil. Exploration routinely yields additional resources far larger than initial estimates.
    Resources from oil shale and additional oil resources that are likely to be discovered are not included in the estimates of American oil supplies.

    Oh no.. you're attempt to slip away from your original challenge won't work.

    You said to show you an instance where the Democratic minority stopped drilling anywhere in the U.S.

    That's exactly what I did.

    Pretty pitiful attempt on your part.

    I have a hybrid pony, a solar heated wigwam, and enough sense to recognize that we passed peak oil in this country 40 years ago. What about you?

    Oh, you just wanted a technical victory with your pizz ant ANWR drilling that wouldn't amount to any significant change in peak oil or prices, Ok. When you have something that actually challenges that we passed peak oil 40 years, please let me know.

    You're just mad because I proved you wrong and then called your hand when you tried to weasel out of it by changing the subject.

    I'll take you admission that I was right though.
