Get ready for LOTS of this as the midterms near:
Not withstanding the thousands of gallons of oil pumping into the coast, there are precious few places left to drill, babies. US oil production peaked in the 1970s and has been declining ever since. The low hanging fruit is all but gone. You want to drill, you're going to do it in densely populated or environmentally sensitive areas or in deep off-shore water.
We've arrived at the edge of our hubris. We either get ourselves into oil rehab or drown in our addiction.
When will you realize that?
