I agree with Mark Warner regarding offshore oil drilling that we should pause, I just believe that “pause” should be “forever.” Instead, we need to focus on energy efficiency, offshore wind, wave, solar, even nuclear power. The bottom line, though, is that we need to wean ourselves off of polluting fossil fuels and move to the next generation of carbon-free, clean energy. Offshore oil drilling certainly does not put us on that path.
P.S. Instead of more disastrous oil spills, how about “The Five Percent Solution?”
