Want to Drill?...Don't?...Voice Your Opinion

Devil's Advocate of Copious Dissent is doing some nice work getting people's feedback about the direction our nation should be taking with our energy policy.

The Partnership for America's Energy Security is providing a way for citizens throughout the nation to voice their concerns, comments, or encouragement to the Minerals Management Service of the U.S. Department of the Interior about expanding offshore oil and gas development for the years 2010-2015.

The Minerals Management Service is the federal bureau that manages the nation's natural gas, oil, and other mineral resources on the outer continental shelf (OCS).

Now's the time to make your voices heard, but they ask that comments are sent no later than September 15th,  so you've got a small window to provide your feedback.

Here's the link to the MMS' 5-Year Program comments page.

I hope you'll go on record in support of expanding the ongoing search for oil and natural gas to the 85% (574 million acres) of the Outer Continental Shelf that is currently off-limits to exploration and production.
