Don’t Drill Florida’s Coast

Posted by Trish Riley, June 21, 2009

GoGreenNation: It seems strange that state and national legislators are pushing to open up Florida’s coastline to oil rigs. The science is in, and we know that burning oil results in pollution that threatens our health and causes global warming. So why would we want to retrieve and burn even more, when we could use this knowledge to put our country on a safer path for the future? Investing in renewable energy – Solar and wind (not nuclear!) – is the best choice for all.

The Gainesville Sun provided an excellent editorial on this subject today:

The public seems to be whistling a different tune than the oil companies are. Congress needs to decide which one to heed.
