What do you guys think? One Republican senator claims there is enough oil in Alaskan reserves to sustain the United States for 25 years. I have 3 points on this. 1. Sustain for energy (oil -> petroleum) or sustain for hydrocarbon use (nylon, plastic production, textiles, foods, fertilizers, etc) or both? There is a difference 2. Suppose it was approved. Who would get the contract? 3. Will we come up with sustainable fusion within those 25 years? At least half way before we run out of oil reserves?
