    Yes, the "smart" thing to do is to conserve oil, but the American public is brain-dead, and that is how I make my investment decisions. . .they LOVE SUV's and other gas guzzlers. One guy on local TV the other night was filling his SUV, and said, "what are you gonna do?". . .when asked if he would get rid of his SUV, he said, "I like the size of it for my long commute, and I can use it on the weekends to hual stuff around.". . .Let's face it, if gas goes down a few cents, people will think $2.50 gas is cheap!. . .right now premium around here is near $3. . . yes, they should drill under San Francisco Bay, but the Sierra Club has prevented any drilling off California - that is why I have so much invested in oil, gas, and coal. . .Gee, I think I will send a check to the Sierra Club right now!. . .good for my investments.

      Exactly. The Sierra Club is clueless as to what the realities in the current energy situation are and will be in the future. The "Not in my backyard " treehuggers who oppose drilling in ANRW, offshore FL and CA, LNG terminals, refineries and new power plants are the greatest aid in energy investing. As long as they fight the inevitable and make new energy sources more expensive with their legal challenges, I will continue to buy energy.

      • Actually, the American public is clueless that oil is a finite resource. Everything is right now, right here. No one could give a crap about what our kids or grandkids will have to deal with. I highly doubt anyone,
        including tankerat who held land on the Cali coast would appreciate it looking like the coast of southeast Texas. Then again, if there is money to be made, who gives a rat's ass!

      • Tank,
        I assume you are contributing to the Sierra
        Club then? Eh? You should be, as they will help continue to make your energy investments
        much more valuable. Again, I ask, would you be willing to have a refinery in your local town? Actually in your back yard? I highly doubt it. Its always different to talk about those "tree huggers" that don't want refineries in their town or back yard, but if you are totally honest, I doubt you would like one either. To me, the Sierra club is
        the one of the few that really sees the future. The one without oil. They promote the switchover to renewable resources, instead of the reliance on oil and fossil fuels. I for one will proudly continue to contribute to them, and hope that the greedy and clueless RIGHTWING of this country sees the light and works to make this country non dependant on oil.

      • The environmentalist movement has had some small successes. Rather like sweeping the tide, though.

        It's quite a stretch to think the Sierra Club is responsible for the high cost of solar cells, or of extracting oil from Alberta's tar sands, or of developing fuel cell technology.

        Barring a few miracles, oil will run out eventually. Just when, who can say? And then what? At what cost?

        We should've begun serious funding R & D into alternatives 30 years ago.

      • What we need right now is more refineries that can deal with the heavy crude that SA and others keep sending us.

        Funny thing too. Those Sierra club types are the ones you will see taking private jets and getting picked up from the airport in limousines. All the while lamenting that you and me won't trade in our cars and trucks for bicycles. Quite a racket they've got there!
