    The point is, ladies and gentlemen, is that greed--for lack of a better word--is good. Greed is right. Greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit. Greed, in all of its forms--greed for life, for money, for love, knowledge--has marked the upward surge of mankind. And Greed--you mark my works--will not only save [this company] but that other malfunctioning corporation called the USA.
    Thank you very much.

    HAHA!

    A solid phalanx of Republican moderates drove House GOP leaders to drop a hotly contested plan to open an Alaskan wilderness area to oil drilling as a sweeping budget bill headed toward a vote Thursday.

    A plan to allow states to lift a moratorium on oil drilling off the Atlantic and Pacific coasts was also axed. The decision on the Arctic refuge was a big setback for those who have tried for years to open a coastal strip of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, or ANWR, to oil development. It was a victory for environmentalists, who have lobbied hard against drilling. President Bush has made drilling in the Alaska refuge one of his top energy priorities.

    The House Rules Committee formalized the change late Wednesday by issuing the terms of the debate when the House takes up the budget package Thursday. The decision to drop the ANWR drilling language came after GOP moderates said they would oppose the budget if that language remained. Protection of the Alaska refuge from oil companies has been championed by environmentalists for years. The House repeatedly has approved drilling in the refuge as part of broad energy legislation, only to see the effort blocked each time by the threat of a filibuster in the Senate. The budget bill is immune from filibuster, but drilling proponents suddenly found it hard to get the measure accepted by a majority of the House. That's because Democrats oppose the overall budget bill, giving House GOP opponents of drilling in the Arctic enough leverage to have the matter killed.

    Drilling in the Arctic has nothing to do with the budget nor with generating revenues for America. The figures put forward in the reconciliation package are highly speculative at best. Both the House and Senate assume $2.4 billion in revenues from Arctic drilling, a number that is inflated to 80 times the going rate for oil leases in the region. If they really cared about high prices, they would be looking into why oil companies are raking in record profits in the wake of the recent hurricanes.

    The issue of oil drilling in the Arctic Refuge is too important to the American public and future generations to be snuck through in the budget bill in an attempt to circumvent the established process. It should be fully debated and brought to a vote on its own merits.

    Drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge would not put a dent in our dependence on foreign oil, would do nothing to strengthen our national security, and would not save consumers a dime at the pump. But the harm to wildlife and this spectacular wilderness would be permanent and irreparable.

    Americans deserve a cheaper, quicker, safer and cleaner energy policy that safeguards the wild places we care so deeply about. We cannot drill our way to energy independence, but we can embrace responsible measures and real, 21st Century energy solutions that make cars go farther on a gallon of gas, promote conservation, invest in clean renewable energy, and protect our natural heritage.

    By simply increasing fuel efficiency standards for our cars to an average of 40 miles per gallon we could save more oil than we currently import from the Persian Gulf or could ever extract from the Arctic Refuge, combined.

    Lee Raymond, chairman of Exxon Mobil Corp., said in Washington today he recognizes that high gasoline prices "have put a strain on Americans' household budgets" but he defended his company's huge profits, saying petroleum earnings "go up and down" from year to year. Ready for this?: XOM net income: 2002: $12B; 2003: $22B; 2004: $25B; 2005: proj $40B, that's B as in billion....Thanks Lee

    Re: Opposition to Arctic and Coastal Drilling

    We Americans do not want the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and America's coasts sacrificed for oil and gas industry profits.

    Unfortunately, attempts to dismantle decades of important federal shoreline protections, industrialize America's fragile coasts, and open the pristine Arctic Refuge to destructive oil drilling continue with renewed vigor.

    It is appalling that some members of Congress are exploiting the recent hurricanes, high gas prices and home heating bills to push their controversial and antiquated agenda to drill in some of our country's most special places. A knee-jerk reaction to simply drill more would do little to solve our energy problems in the short or long term. According to a recent Dept. of Energy study, even 20 years from now, when Arctic Refuge oil is at or near peak production, consumers would only be able to save a penny a gallon at the gas pump. A penny a gallon twenty years from now is not worth the loss of the Arctic wilderness forever.

    The United States cannot drill its way to energy independence, but we can embrace responsible measures and real, 21st-century energy solutions that make cars go farther on a gallon of gas, promote conservation and energy efficiency, invest in clean renewable energy, and protect our natural heritage.

    Drilling proponents have buried their controversial provisions deep in the federal budget, but Americans won't be fooled by this sneaky trick.

    We urge you to oppose any efforts that include Arctic Refuge and coastal drilling provisions in a budget bill.

    The Exxon Valdez ship ran aground on Bligh Reef in Prince William Sound in Alaska at 12:04 am March 24, 1989 and spilled 125 olympic sized swimming pools of oil and did environmental damage that will be felt for years affecting 9,000 miles of shoreline and 250,000 seabirds, 2,800 sea otters, 300 harbor seals, 250 bald eagles, up to 22 killer whales, and billions of salmon and herring eggs......I have not purchased one Exxon product since that day. Take your profits and return on your investment and stick it where the sun doesn't shine, ok?
