this is a matter of survival, i think you all know the consequences if you approve of any drilling. for us humans to be deemed the most educated & god gifted beings on the planet, we sure as hell do not act in that manner. think of all of the life on this planet, if we as citizens are entrusting with you the power to engage in such decision making that it effects the entirety of mankind; i’d expect the decision to be on the side of the people. not the rich. this a democracy, no?
