Letter to the Editor
Last summer we had the Gulf oil spill that reminded us that that with oil there’s a price to pay. They said that drilling was safe – but it wasn’t. Now we are looking at nuclear meltdown and it’s not just one reactor – it’s 4 of them. I don’t see any way they are going to explain that away.
It’s time to get real. If we invested just the cost of one war for oil we could develop solar, wind, and clean fuels and not have to evacuate areas of the planet for hundreds or thousands of years or go to war to protect a limited and shrinking supply of oil. We need to look at what will actually work and fully evaluate the risks and consequence based on science. Bad choices have consequences and if we are going to survive we have to stop making these kinds of serious mistakes. The penalty for poor judgment is extinction. I urge everyone to choose existence!
