NEWS: Oil under Yellowstone?

As we know President George Bush in his recent State of the Union address acknowledged that the US was addicted to oil. He accepted the US needed to look for alternatives and for more secure supplies of oil in the meantime.

Imagine my surprise then when I recently discovered this report about Bush secretly opening up Yellowstone National Park for oil exploration as a massive reserve has been discovered there. It even has the Saudis worried.

This discovery buys the US a secure supply of oil which should allow it to focus any subsequent Foreign Policy efficiencies [ahem] on developing renewables.

Always said I thought President George W Bush was a great guy.

PS Only joking folks…'tis just an April Fools Day hoax. He he he! Not even GWB would drill in Yellowstone, or would he? Hmmmm...

Happy Fool's Day! Al...that's a good post for it :-D but the thing is, I think GWB would drill down that Yellowstone Park if there's a sign of a drip of oil ;-P with or without April Fool's effects...

Okay, you had me there for a minute -- I could feel my blood pressure rising. The sad thing is, it's not that unthinkable. GWB has done so many unbelievable and horrible things that I would simply put nothing past him.
