The Albuquerque Journal Editorial Page is on a rant about drilling for domestic oil. Today they have many letters to the editor published by oil company toadies. The Journal itself has editorialized on their belief that opening the Alaskan National Wildlife Refuge would do some good. Even though there are tens of millions of acres already leased but not drilled. John Trever, their creative and funny cartoonist is also on the band wagon for more domestic drilling. It makes me think that Yates Petroleum has bought a controlling interest in the paper.
I would direct the editorial writers to the web page opened by Texas Oilman turned renewable energy proponent Boone Pickens. He is a guy from the oil industry that really gets it and is looking further than the next quarter's bottom line. He is looking towards the good of the country.
I urge everyone to check this page out. Especially my good friends at the Journal Editorial Page.
