There a gas glut down under. There will be no gas line built in Alaska. Even Governor Walker understands the gas pipeline is dead.

You sure about that? This guy at Forbes is real bullish on LNG, says it's likely to be the fuel of choice for electricity generation in the future as the world attempts to lower green house emissions.

"In all, the world will need all LNG projects from all nations. The current global LNG glut persists until 2021 or so, but a huge gap emerges thereafter."

I didn't know the Gov opposed a new pipeline.

I think the less pipelines for this state the better, too much natural beauty up here to sacrifice in a disaster.

So, what do you heat your home with, Gordon? Do you use electricity?

(you only have to read the first sentence):

Have you ever seen a coal mine? Ever seen somebody drilling for oil?

Can you hear me rolling my eyes?

I would like to hear Gordon's response to that question. Maybe he lives in a place where it does not get hot nor cold, and where there is no electricity? Well, maybe the electricity is produced by the outlet

Maybe Gordon's electricity comes from Baby Jesus!

I would also like to hear his response, but I have a feeling I'm not going to.

I built wind turbines for over 16 years, and my hippie-dippy sister used to give me grief about it "because they destroy the earth." Meanwhile, she was burning up Jet A flying around the globe in a 747 like there was no tomorrow, driving her Subaru Forrester from here to hell and back, and using electricity off the grid, just like you and me.

I refused to argue with her about it, but I used to ask her, "Hey, when you get up in the morning, do you flip the light switch on?" She never did get my point. She just about lost her mind when I started working at an open pit gold mine. I told her, "It's okay! We're going to fill it up with water when we're done!" She did not think that was funny. But, in retrospect, she did not think that wind turbines were Satan's Spawn anymore

The governor doesn't oppose the gas pipeline. Quite the opposite, he supports it. But now he realizes that it is not going to be built any time soon. I personally support it in principle, but I also realize that there has to be a market for the gas and we have to be competitive with the rest of the market.
