Drill Baby Drill?
With the Gulf Coast oil slick, it's time to discuss a few things. We agree that we need to start looking for domestic sources of energy, such as oil, natural gas, wind, nuclear, and geothermal. It is not good to be beholden to other countries for our oil, since the Middle East isn't exactly friendly territory for us. On the other hand, safety measures need to be improved here, in order to keep our environment from being harmed by accidents with oil rigs and wells. Also, if we are going to drill locally, perhaps the rigs/wells could be made more sightseer friendly, since who wants to go camping or sailing near a ugly looking oil rig?
