Jnich and the New Jersey guy are falling back on the FAIL assumption that oil out of a spendy/inefficient hole in CONUS = 'less dependence on foreign oil'. That ain't the way the market works. It ain't the way the refineries in Houston area work either.

And to New Jersey guy: yes, i've heard of North Dakota. I can find it on a map, even. Some of us Chuckleheads have been there, even. If you need me to post some which-one-of-these-places-is-not-like-the-other pictures of Blackwater State Forest vs N. Dakota, i certainly can

Bring the NIMBY argument, b/c it's always a valid argument.
But you have to bring a better foil than North Dakota, dude. Drilled desert is not the same as drilled Longleaf forest, no matter how much you squint/justify

Aktually if we'd just start promote the use of Solar Power a little more, we could do just that. The Sunshine State... laughable at times.

Not sure if the petition page has been posted or not so check THIS OUT

Yes sir we do; but we are also running out of places to ride our dirt bikes. Are you on this formum because you like to ride dirt bikes or as a conservationist? If so you might want to find a forum about conservation!

If we could convert the big users of fossil fuels to alternatives, there would be plenty already existing to supply consumers. me personally? you're damn right NIMBY! This forest is where I grew up, camping fishing hunting riding hiking canoeing.. and the actual wording in the bill would allow a potential clearcut of the ENTIRE forest. Yes I know that wouldn't happen, but I'll tell ya what will happen - the nicest most choice pieces of land will be the first ones cleared. murphy's law applies here.

foreign oil? not going to be supplanted by our lil forest. aint gonna happen. and from what i've heard the area has yielded little results from exploratory drilling on private land in the area. so yes, lets destroy thousands of acres in the hopes of finding something they haven't found here already. this is a prime example of the government and their contractors "inventing" work to keep the money moving around. NIMBY? gawddamn right.

It's about fuct up that we are not allowed to use motorized vehicles on certain roads, but it's OK to just rape the Forrest for oil. Am I missing something here.
As for the people saying "don't want to be dependent on foreign oil". Nobody is saying "don't drill for oil in America". Just don't do it in the GD Forrest. How hard is that? I know they can drill miles away & turn into the Forrest. Do that.

With this looming on the not-too-distant horizon, we definitely do NOT need delicate ecosystems such as the BW State Forest messed with.

We are thinking about riding over from Tallahassee for the meeting... not 100% sure yet but if we go we have a burb that seats up to nine and will be willing to provide transport to others for gas money.
