DO NOT ALLOW THIS. The environmental impact alone would be an irreversible waste. To think it could not, would not, affect human life is ignorant. I implore our representatives to question the professionals on this: scientists, wildlife/animal experts and the like. Please do not place your decision on the bottom line of big oil corporations and the rich that stand to make even more money on the lives of thousands, potentially millions of living creatures that we should be taking care of; not destroying because they stand in the way of a gas pump!
