Letter: Plenty of fossil fuels still available

There are now more known oil reserves than ever, yet we are still being told we are running out of oil by "big oil," which wants to keep prices high, and the "greens," who want us to go back to the horse and buggy days.

Unless America abandons her "fossil fuel is running out" mentality and aggressively develops known reserves and explores at greater depths, we will see economy-crippling gas prices as we continue to send some $500 billion overseas every year. We also need to shore up our trade-dollar with some kind of a gold standard, or we will see gas up to $10 a gallon.

Nations like individuals who lose their spiritual underpinnings, lose their common sense and become self-destructive. The religion of Environmentalism is well on its way to destroying America as we know it.
