Off shore drilling voted down today on a party line vote. We better get out there before the Cubans and Chinese.

The international standard for a country's own waters is 12 nautical miles offshore. We (the U.S.) have invoked a Contiguous Zone out to 24 nuatical miles. There is also an Exclusive economic zone which extends out 200 nautical miles, unless the limit overlaps with another country.

Territorial waters - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The drilling in the proposed legislation was between 50-200mi offshore. I don't know if the areas proposed were actually in conflict with the Cuban initiatives (they probably weren't). However, approving offshore drilling initiatives is the first step in addressing the problem of the Cuban government selling their oil drilling rights off the NW shore (within 50 miles of Key West) to the Chinese and other countries. Repealing the embargo on Cuba is the second step. Considering the current world energy situation, the potential for environmental damage created by the Chinese, and the potential for greater Chinese influence in the region this is a strategic position we should take IMO (keep your friends close and your enemies closer).

Why do the democrats vote down drilling. We have so much oil to drill for here, but for some reason we are not allowed to do it. That is the only way we are going to lower gas prices and not have to depend on the Middle East for our energy. The economy would be so much better if those retards in congress would let us drill. Gas prices are definitely one thing people can't blame George Bush for because he actually wants to drill.

Now can't kill a fish or a bird. That would just be inhumane, but we can stick it to the people. I am still waiting for the cheap oil that people were saying why we went to war with Iraq.

Re: F... gas prices

I don't this may be far fetched but you would think that it is all most unconstitutional with the oil prices this his and they are not doing anything about it. What ever happened to the phrase "for the people by the people?" I would just like to hear a good reason why they voted it down. I did not hear the liberal media mention this vote down.

Re: F... gas prices

WASHINGTON (AP) — For a quarter-century, drilling for oil and gas off nearly all the American coastline has been banned in part to protect tourism and to lessen the chances of beach-blackening spills.

Re: F... gas prices

first flip flop of this election. McCain now wants to drill, after being opposed to it

Re: F... gas prices

Here is what caught my eye in that article:
Quote:
The 574 million acres of federal coastal water that are off-limits are believed to hold nearly 18 billion barrels of undiscovered, recoverable oil and 77 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, according to the Interior Department. The country each year uses about 7.6 billion barrels of oil and 21 trillion cubic feet of natural gas.
So drilling into these areas will provide oil for roughly 28 months, and natural gas for 44 months...5-10 years down the road. That's a small band-aid on a crater-sized hole.

Quite honestly, I'd rather Congress push Big Oil into further developing alternative sources than drill these areas.

He wants to drill here, but still doesn't want to touch ANWR, where I believe there is much more oil and natural gas than in these coastal areas.

Yep, hardly a viable long term solution.

We need to shake our addiction to oil... period.

Wait, I thought that "flip flop" was a phrase that only the GOP used. When Kerry was accused of flip-flopping on Iraq, Dems responded that he was merely reacting to changing conditions and that is a sign of intelligence.

IMO, we need to differentiate between flip-flopping for purely political reasons and changing policies to account for an ever-changing world. If you think McCain flip-flopped for purely political purposes, what political advantage did he gain? He certainly lost some votes from the slightly left of center independents and he didn't gain any votes from most Repubs who would never vote for Obama. McCain can say with a straight face that he changed his opinion after the new gas crisis struck.

Its not like this will be our only source of oil for 28 months straight. That wouldn't even be possible. This would just add to oil that we are already producing, and more places that we should start drilling, plus oil that we're already getting from Canada. We can tell Saudi Arabia and Venezuala to go screw themselves and we'd be getting all of our oil from North America.

I agree that we need to develop alternate sources, but it will take time and we need more oil now.
