As a proud resident of Alabama, I am now officially opposed to off shore drilling.
Gulf Shores, you know, the Redneck Riviera, and it was just beautiful. Was may be the proper tense.
Every energy source has its problems. Solar is expensive and just doesn't work well in some areas. Wind power modifies the local climate and can harm wildlife. Nuclear produces waste that lasts forever. Coal impacts the health of the miners and it's going to run out just like oil. Veggie fuel cuts into the world food supply.
What to do?
