I'm simply saying that there is value to continued oil exploration and that WHOO-HOO, this means good things (in your opinion, jobs).

I even stated that this was a good thing (like YOU did) and opined that it would help ease our way into more renewable sources of energy.

I simply don't understand why you are attacking me.
I agree with the rest of your previous statement. But...

Cap and trade is dead in the water!

Made me stop and think, we should use this as a reprieve and still march forward to renewables. Maybe this will help us get our house in order that way. I just hope the government and our citizenry use the same caution.
Texas is boom bust boom bust. And that's OK as long as there's something further to boom about. I guess I'm just a nervous Nelly.

This won't affect the economy in any region for 5 more years, but it is good news and I shall refrain from dark thoughts for now.
