Letter: Another oil-drilling prediction

By on June 3, 2010

A few months ago, I wrote an article in regard to global warming. I strongly suggested that promoting off shore oil drilling was not smart, and we were headed for a catastrophe.

Well, I have another prediction. We will get a lot of finger pointing and the taxpayers will pay, not only environmentally but at the pump. Our government will reassure us that this will never happen again, but again off shore drilling will continue. Once again, they will sell out to the oil industry for 30 pieces of silver.

This is what I would like to see: BP pays for all of the destruction to our environment and livelihoods. Secondly, BP, Trans Ocean, and Haliburton should be required by law to purchase and install a solar panel on every roof in this country.

I would also like to make one more pitch for conservation. If we wait for the government, it isn’t going to happen. We must make it happen.
