A) No drilling will occur in present system -- there will be no political compromise ondrilling in the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS)Lorber, June 29, 2008
(Janie, staff writer, Newsday)http://www.newsday.com/news/printedition/nation/ny-usgas295745942jun29,0,4195606.story
But for all the talk, significant compromise in Washington has been out of reach
in this pre-electionsummer, and few experts predict any sweeping legislation that could lead to a comprehensive solution to theenergy crisis - or even put a serious dent in gas prices. One reason, analysts say, is that
both parties cling tolong-standing positions on energy - then blame their colleagues across the aisle for blocking theirefforts
B) Link – The plan will spark Democrats to compromise on drilling in the OCS – they wantan increase in alternative energyHarshaw July 10, 2008
(Tobin, staff writer, New York Times)http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/07/10/bipartisan-but-to-what-end/?ref=opinion
Senate Democrats seem to be willing to compromise with Republicans on
an energy plan that would expand
offshore drilling
, and it’s leaving Mother Jones’s Jonathan Stein a bit bemused: This feels like a compromise insearch of a conflict. The Democrats in Congress are ready to pass an energy bill that,
in exchange for “investmentsin clean and renewable energies
, a crackdown on oil speculators, and proof that the oil and gas companies are fullyutilizing land that is already leased for exploration,” will legalize additional offshore drilling. Really? Am I just outof touch? Has there been a public outcry in support of offshore drilling? There was a media war on the subject awhile back, and I thought we were able to prove the idea is a useless pander it won’t lower gas prices substantially,it won’t put any additional oil on the market for seven to 10 years, it distracts us from serious and long-term energysolutions, etc. And after all that, congressional Dems are just going to cede the issue? Maybe
they need to includeoffshore drilling as a sop to the Republicans in order to get renewable energy provisions
in this upcoming bill.FYI -- (sop means to pacify in this context)
