From Robert Bidinotto:

With the recent gasoline price crisis, congressional Republicans had a matchless opportunity to rally public opinion in order to steamroll radical environmentalists, and, at long last, open taboo regions — such as the Arctic National Wildlife Reserve, and offshore regions in the Pacific — to fossil fuel exploration.
