As for Mr. Wright, there is a strong possibility that he is a liberal and an environmentalist, and therefore beyond all hope when it comes to things called FACTS.

why does the western world rely so much on middle east oil i have always wondered ... there is a lot of oil from texas that is produced, up here we have oil produced from alberta .. is there not enough production? are we saving it? do we have to rely on the mideast for this ? i agree we need oil, but do we need their oil ...

Just look how many years we've been trying to drill in ANRW. The liberals don't want any nasty, smelly oil, so they are NIMBY. Obama has not lifted the moratoriums he put on deep water wells after the BP disaster (see link below). The left is already using the Japan nuke problems to advance their anti-nuclear program.

They want only supposedly "green" sources of energy, like solar and wind. Too bad for us if the sun's not out or the wind's not blowing...

BTW, anyone notice the procedure for disposing of the mercury-laden "green" florescent bulbs if they break? I'm stocking up on the incandescent...

BO's administration is still pursuing legal action to block drilling (http://www.businessweek.com/news/2011-03-15/u-s-wins-delay-in-deadlines-for-quick-drill-permit-action.html)

I think this is applies to the topic.
From our wonderful EPA:

Cleaning Up a Broken CFL
What to Do if a Compact Fluorescent Light (CFL) Bulb or Fluorescent Tube Light Bulb Breaks in Your Home: Overview

Fluorescent light bulbs contain a small amount of mercury sealed within the glass tubing. When a fluorescent bulb breaks in your home, some of this mercury is released as mercury vapor. The broken bulb can continue to release mercury vapor until it is cleaned up and removed from the residence. To minimize exposure to mercury vapor, EPA recommends that residents follow the cleanup and disposal steps described below.

This page presents only the most important steps to reduce exposure to mercury vapor from a broken bulb.

1.Before cleanup
◦Have people and pets leave the room.
◦Air out the room for 5-10 minutes by opening a window or door to the outdoor environment.
◦Shut off the central forced air heating/air-conditioning system, if you have one.
◦Collect materials needed to clean up broken bulb.
2.During cleanup
◦Be thorough in collecting broken glass and visible powder.
◦Place cleanup materials in a sealable container.
3.After cleanup
◦Promptly place all bulb debris and cleanup materials outdoors in a trash container or protected area until materials can be disposed of properly. Avoid leaving any bulb fragments or cleanup materials indoors.
◦If practical, continue to air out the room where the bulb was broken and leave the heating/air conditioning system shut off for several hours.

In America we have tree huggers who will not let them build the needed refineries. We have plenty of oil but not enough refineries to produce they needs of our country.
