Debate about Profits in the Oil Industry with Air America Radio Host Thom Hartmann



Chuck Norton sent me this link from the WSJ about the 68 million acres of leases that the oil companies are supposedly refusing to drill on.

Yes, for pennies on the dollar:

Some of the leases, which run for 10 years and cost the winner an annual rental fee of $1 an acre, are worthless. Others may have a high potential for exploration and be coveted by oil companies. In any case, winners of leases get the right to negotiate terms with oil companies that might be interested in exploring on the land. Odds Are 10,000 to 1, They Say

You did a good job on Hartmann's show. I hope to hear you on there again.

Thom Hartmann can be a tough debate, and it's always interesting because it's more about real thoughts and facts than FOX News style shouting, etc.
