Burning more oil is not the answer


Stage: Active

Campaign: Issues: Domestic

With all the debate around offshore drilling, ANWR, and oil prices, why isn't the debate clearly focused on the fact that we cannot pursue a plan that assumes we can continue to use oil until it is gone? If we do that, the impact on the climate will be catastrophic, so we have to focus on non-fossil fuel solutions.

    Since Congress is now in the habit of passing laws to benefit specific companies, maybe they could pass a law that defined solar thermal as a technology necessary for national security and intrinsically better for the environment than nuclear, coal- or oil-based power. Maybe they could bypass the environmental impact studies on this. I think I'd rather give up a few square miles of desert than the equivalent space on the continental shelves.

    This, of course, would require common sense. Does anyone think Congress has any of that?
