  1. More fossil fuels will really help that melting permafrost, too, right? When Sen. Murkowski talked about how many decades they have been trying to get this drilling done, I was thinking, “Any energy policy that relies on a plan that’s more than 30 years old is probably outdated.”

    • Yep. I lived in Alaska when Lisa’s dad, Frank, held that senate seat. He pushed hard to drill in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, along with Sen Ted Stevens. I was out in front of the library, gathering signatures to protect the refuge, and was on such a roll with my spiel that I didn’t recognize ol’ Ted. He said, “I’m Senator Ted Stevens. Stop wasting my time,” and stalked away. I refrained from yelling after him, “You look taller on television!”

      Greedy, short-sighted asses. All of them.
