Drill Baby Update

That didn't take long. Yesterday I predicted that Environuts would stroke out over this propsal to use diagnal drilling to tap into ANWR. Now their demands have expanded from ANWR itself to anywhere near there. To show they are serious they invoked the name of the messiah.
JUNEAU -- Environmental groups said they would fight any legislation that would let oil companies drill sideways from outside the boundaries of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge into its oil and gas reserves, predicting it would be "dead in the water" under the Obama administration.

Their response came within hours
of U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski's announcement Thursday that she planned to introduce a bill that would allow for use of a technology called directional drilling under the surface of the coastal plain -- a relatively small but controversial area on the northern edge of the refuge.
