Time to develop gas resources

In 2002, Alaskans overwhelming supported the development of our natural gas through an All-Alaska Gasline. Ten years later, we the people, continue to  wait. Why do our Alaskan Legislators continue to beg Washington DC and the oil companies to build the All-Alaska Gasline?

We argue over oil production while we put natural gas back down into the ground. Oil is used for transportation. Natural gas is cheaper and cleaner for motor transportation. It has been estimated that this nation spent $7 trillion since 1976 on our military ventures to protect and support our oil production around the world. What has been the human cost? Think what Alaska could do with our production of natural gas. I understand the auto industry can and have produced natural gas fueled automobiles. In a recent interview, T. Boone Pickens stated his belief -- we will go down in history as the "dumbest" people ever if we do not develop our natural gas. It is time we demand our elected politicians, in Juneau, to develop our natural gas resources and become the most productive nation and state in the union called the United States.
