Recharging debate, Obama expands offshore drilling
WASHINGTON – Shaking up years of energy policy and his own environmental backers, President Barack Obama threw open a huge swath of East Coast waters and other protected areas in Alaska and the Gulf of Mexico to drilling Wednesday, widening the politically explosive hunt for more homegrown oil and gas.

What we need is a well publicized and comprehensive energy conservation program. Cut down on some of the miles. Turn off some of the fucking lights that blaze all night long.
