  5. I apologize for this post being late and out of place, I am today on page 24 playing catchup, but I wanted to relate for what its worth a personal experience from visiting Omaha Beach for the 55th anniversary of the landings on June 6 1999. At the time I was living and working in London, England. My son's Boy Scout Troop, and many other from all over Europe, drove to Normandy and spent a couple days there for this anniversary. Our bus took us to Pointe du Hoc- the gun emplacement is still there today as are the trenches and the whole area is pockmarked with bomb and shell craters. not much has changed i guess. There is a monument to Gen Earl Rudder commemorating the Rangers assault (Gig'em Ags!!!). After this our bus took us a few miles to the east where we all walked to the southern edge of Omaha Beach, along the beach, up the cliffs to the American Cemetary located there (remember the scenes from Saving Private Ryan at this cemetary?) All the Scouts from all over Europe ringed the central area as the US Ambassador and other dignitaries made presentations. Afterwards each scout was given a flag and the name of an American soldier, he had to find that soldier and place the flag on his grave.... Words escape me in an attempt to describe this..... Walking along the sandy beaches that day and climbing the cliffs, those brave men who stormed the beaches and climbed those cliffs deserve our eternal gratitude. it must have been sheer hell......
  6. bump so i can find this easier.....about halfway thru. this narrative is great....
  7. No...the political sides exaggerate on both ends...I've heard/read that crude can be extracted in as few as 3 years.The time scales associated with finding/discovering the oil/gas, determining how much is there, obtaining the necessary government permits, building the platforms, then connecting them to shore via pipeline or shuttle tankers can take up to 10 years. Reasons for that are- with possible exception of Destin Dome area offshore Fla, most of the rest of these hydrocarbon reserves are in very deep water (more than 5000 or 6000 ft of water), far from shore, and/or in inhospitable weather conditions (N Slope, E Coast, etc). The costs for large projects just to put the platform, pipelines and drill field development wells can be several Billion dollars. Typically from time of discovery to first production takes 8-10 years.Realistically to have an impact we need to start now so we can get these hydrocarbons to market in 8-10 years. So far the political will/climate of states like Fla, CA etc hold the rest of the country hostage because they dont want drilling to occur offshore. (e.g. the Destin Dome area offshore Fla Panhandle has discovered GAS reserves but we cannot develop them because Fla is afraid of an OIL spill on its beaches-to my knowledge there is little to NO oil associated with these gas deposits, so there you can see how people's fears impact the country.) What really needs to happen is the country and its politicians need to have a lesson in what it takes to find and develop hydrocarbons. then they/we need to embark upon a targeted campaign to find those hydrocarbons we can (oil and gas), put them in production, build more refineries (where?-this is the NIMBY mentality too!!), and in concert with this fund expanded research into the feasibility of alternative energy sources. Realize that these alternatives will not have an impact soon (next 10+years) but are more likely to be replacements in 30+years....Its easy to blame the politicians for the stances they take, both state and national, but what it really will take is a groundswell of individual people (voters) who express their desire to exploit these resources off CA, FLa, N Slope, E Coast, oil shale, etc.....until that happens the only thing that will happen is folks will vent in Forums like this and we wont get anywhere.....its like the Social Secuirty System, Health Care, etc - nothing will happen in Gov't until the dire end is near and then it may be too late!!tex
