Three Reasons To Oppose Offshore Drilling

with 2 comments

Three reasons to oppose expanded offshore drilling for oil along America’s coastlines:

1. Offshore drilling will not bring down gasoline prices significantly or soon enough to deal with the current crisis.

2. Offshore drilling threatens America’s coastal waters that are already suffering from an oceans-wide ecological crisis.

3. Offshore oil rigs are extremely vulnerable to hurricanes, such as Hurricane Katrina, which completely destroyed more than 110 oil rigs.
