“[M]ore diverse domestic exploration needs to be part of the [energy] solution, even if it won’t help immediately. After all, where would the nation be if Alaska’s North Slope had remained untouched? This week, unfortunately, we’re finding out.”

Bottom line: we should be tapping our own resources in ANWR and in the Outer Continental Shelf.
