WHEN will oil companies understand they're ruining life on the planet? WHEN will we demand that they get into solar/wind technologies to save OUR earth?

This makes me sick! To think Cuomo is contemplating this death wish on NY, and Obama considers it a "gateway" to clean energy and energy independence - makes it nearly impossible to fight! It contributes to global warming as much as fossil fuel and this is costing our nation's wealth as well as the higher cost of "health" associated with the pollutants! I don't understand the mentality of even the wealthiest of these buggers - don't they have families?

Horrible. The world needs to move away from fossil fuels. Use less oil - go car-free if you can ...

Noted. Thanks, Cal. It seems most, if not all, of private property purchased in the US, gives all mineral rights to the gov't. I'm not at all familiar with the law or how old it is, but it's definitely time for some major changes to it. Even when property is sold, the new owner still doesn't hold mineral rights if the previous owner sold them. There should be and end to this, and new owners should be able to make their own decisions....not live with the status quo. I'm sure others have better info on this than I do.
