President Bush lifted the executive ban on offshore oil exploration yesterday, and has called on congress to repeal its ban which has been in place since Bush Sr. created via executive order in 1990. Read more here.
We try to steer clear of political posts at Seahuggers but with something like this, which is so obviously deleterious to our oceans and beaches, we could not hold our voice.
Folks, offshore oil drilling is not the answer (neither is drilling in ANWR). We need to look toward alternative, renewable, and sustainable energy sources NOW.
I'll leave it there.
