Eglin Air Force base commander wary of offshore drilling | news-press.com | The News-Press

In an unusually candid acknowledgement, the commander of Eglin Air Force Base told lawmakers Wednesday that oil and gas drilling in Florida waters could pose a threat to military operations....

...Sen. Don Gaetz, R-Niceville, said McClintock's remarks are still not enough to convince him to oppose offshore drilling. However, he said he will vote against offshore drilling when he is convinced it threatens the bases in his Panhandle district.

So for example, my dh and I would just show up a little before noon on Feb 13 at BMB? Are we still wearing black tshirts? I didn't see mention of that on the link.

Thanks so much
Gidget and Moondoggie ;-)

Here's an unpopular opinion - I don't WANT really cheap gas!

The only way to get people to actually think about conservation and resources is price. When it affects their pocketbook they care a heckavu lot more than when it just affects their planet, soul, children's future etc.

$3 gas makes people buy more efficient vehicles, think about their consumption, insulate, etc.

$2 gas makes them buy Humvees and F-7000 pickups.


Excellent post!!!

Alec, my answer is "What are states that come to our sparkling clean beaches for vacation because theirs are nasty?"
