I am with goosehtr4life 100% on this. Just think if the resources that are used to explore for and recover fossil fuels were used for research to find an alternative means of energy. Hmmmm. But with the current administration we are taking giant steps backward and undoing any of the good that has been achieved through past legislation. We will continue to hear the canned "spun, eh Fetch" half truths that the conservatives will spoonfeed us. When the cat is away (Iraq) the mice will play (drilling in ANWR). Americans have a short attention span, we can only think about this war (oil??) for now. This makes it very easy for those in power to pass legislation that would cause a media and political firestorm otherwise.
Clean Air Act?
What is next?
Things are not looking good for the environment, this should concern all of us, being that we have a common passion. The Great Outdoors.
Aw, fawk it, lets just develop it all!! Right?
