First, I support A Siegel for his many articles on energy issues — Get Energy Smart! NOW!!! and his article Whitehouse Drills Drilling has prompted this from me. (Well, to be honest, it’s been on my mind a lot as it is, anyway!)
THE very most important issue facing us right NOW is global warming — it concerns the survival of the universe, itself!
We need more (Sen. Sheldon) Whitehouses who would state emphatically
. . . do any of you seriously contend that drilling for more oil is the number one issue facing the American people today?
As we know, WE have the technology right now to turn our energy consumption into other alternatives, windmills, solar panels, alcohol (derived from numerous non-edible sources, such as sugar beets, hemp, cattails*, etc.) for use as fuel for our motor driven vehicles. It’s clean and efficient. *Cattails also can serve as a “filter” to prevent “dead zones” in our waters.
