What’s scary? When “all” the candidates for governor agree with the oil companies on Prop. 2! Since the government has the CRP program, paying farmers not to grow to keep prices up, maybe they feel it’s “OK” for the oil companies to sit on leases and not produce to keep prices up. What a deal! Then use the PFD to lead everyone around by the nose to do what they want.
A rail line would create more jobs, over the long run, and lower the cost of living in Alaska. Then we could send our gas anywhere we want, whenever we want, to a bigger market. It would be much cheaper than a gas line and be there when the gas is gone. Win-win! One more win it would bring in more tourists, too!
