Americans Urge for Action on Oil Imports

Do you think it is very important that the United States become less dependent on oil imports?

Yes            73%

No              5%

What is more important, conserving energy or developing new sources of energy?

Developing new sources of energy    71%

Conserving energy                   21%

Source: Rasmussen Reports
Methodology: Telephone interviews with 1,000 American adults, conducted on Sept. 29 and Sept. 30, 2006. Margin of error is 3 per cent.

This one is for Jerome.  I guess the meaning depends on what is meant by developing new sources of energy.  Does that mean building windmills and ethanol plants, or drilling for oil in the Great Lakes.  (Yes, that has been discussed.)

And I'll give my consent to any government that does not deny a man a living wage-Billy Bragg
