  And why can't we drill in ANWAR?
A California congressman, saying there's no easy solution to the huge heating bills facing many people this winter, wants to make it cheaper to cut firewood in national forests.

Although that's unlikely to aid millions of urban households or those with no federal forest nearby, Rep. Richard Pombo, R-Calif., says, "Every bit helps." Pombo introduced legislation Tuesday that would waive the $10 to $15 fee the government charges per cord. "Rural American families who depend on firewood to heat their homes will be hit just as hard as those who use oil and natural gas," Pombo said in a news release.

This will get passed yet we can't drill in the arctic wilderness of ANWAR / ANWR, come on now.
