Letter: Drill, baby, drill
September 16, 2013, 05:00 AM

Editor, 

Now we are done with this nonsense of global warming. If you did not know, there is 60 percent more ice in the Arctic Sea. According to the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC), the Arctic Sea ice averaged 2.35 million square miles in August 2013, compared to a low of 1.32 million square miles on Sept. 16, 2012. A NSIDC chart published on Sept. 8 shows the dramatic rise this year; this puts total ice cover within two standard deviations of the 30-year average. Since this fact was published, some scientists have already jumped ship and have stated that global cooling will be here for the next 15 years or so. Sorry Al Gore, you failed on this fifth grader question too. Now, can we please now get on from there, lick our wounds and start fracking for oil? I want us to be self sufficient, get our oil and gas locally and terminate our dependency on the Middle East to only having to buy sand if somebody needs to go and pound sand somewhere.

Mr. Obama, are you listening? Let’s do something for America for a change.
