Yet Another Petition for You

Here is another opportunity to make use of your *First Amendment right to "petition the Government for a redress of grievances." Go to Your Energy Opinion to sign a letter to an agency within the Department of Energy. This agency, Minerals Management Services, will accept public comments until September 21, then they will decide when, where, and if we can drill for American oil between 2010 and 2015. This decision will be our last chance to use our own natural resources until 2015. Otherwise, we will continue to be held captive by despotic regimes of other oil producing countries and unproven pie-in-the-sky schemes of so called "green" energy companies.

Once you've signed the letter, please forward this information to everyone who shares your views about the folly of ignoring our own resources and ask them to sign also. If we can flood the system with protests, maybe we can have some effect on their decision. Who knows what could happen to the price of oil between now and 2015?

*Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
