Tangential Note From the Alito "Debate"

While listening to the "debate" (what has now been revealed to be pro forma speechifying, thanks to the Democratic senators who voted to allow cloture), one of the GOP members was going on (and on and on) about how Great GW Has Been and how Terrible The Left Has Been, and was pontificating about how terrible it is that the Left is using onerous environmental regulation to keep us from achieving "energy independence."

One example was that there were natural gas reserves that would supply our needs for the next 37 years. *My* not-so-hypothetical question is, what do we do in 2043?

Another thought that crossed my mind was - "How much of that oil and gas the Democrats are 'withholding' are under the ground in the National Parks system and in Indian lands?"
