You're right... Of course if you've ever seen the impact on wildlife an oil spill has.... Its just plain nasty. I've only seen the results of a little spill they had in Maine. I can't imagine what its like during a big spill.

In the renewable energy crowd the mantra is ever $1 spent in conservation is like $5 in energy production. Which roughly means that spending $2 replacing a 60watt incanescent bulb with a 15watt compact flourescent saves $5 worth of solar panels or wind generator or whatever.
If the same applies country wide to our dependance on foreign oil (and I suspect it does) we'd do alot better just spending our money cutting back our need for it than developing other sources.
