Comment Re:Oil Drilling (Score 1) 165

We Americans talking about oil drilling (myself included) because we want to stop buying it from countries that hate us, like the Middle East and Venezuela. Our energy policy should be tied national security policy. Honestly, do you think we'd have any business in Saudi Arabia and Iraq if they didn't have any oil? And if you're thinking of playing the Israel card, they do a fine enough job watching out for themselves, so the U.S. doesn't need to be there to protect them.

Comment Re:How about we start believing in Human Change? (Score 1) 695

How do you do that without consequences in the short-term? I'm worried that putting the environment first will put human lives at risk NOW. 7 billion people need to be fed, clothed, sheltered. We just can't overlook those problems. I do agree that we need to take care of the earth. I just don't want to sacrifice anyone to achieve that goal.
