I'm so sick of hearing about friggin' oil, if we get off of it we don't have to hear these stories anymore, it seems like we see it every other day lately.

Christoffer, we have no aircraft carrier, it was decommissioned, and the next ship will be a helicopter carrier and won't be ready until something like 2020.

Apparently, a French ship took over a selection of RAF planes so we are there.

We have just got to get moving on renewable energy sources. This would help curb the fracking too! It could also provide a lot of jobs to those displaced from the gas and oil industries.
