PostSubject: Top 10 Reasons why offshore drilling it bad   Sun Aug 17, 2008 4:19 pm



Hi Friends!


Gas prices have been jumping over and under the $4 mark all summer, your grocery bills are soaring, and campaign ads are blasting you about the benefits of offshore drilling. So what's an average Joe or Jane supposed to believe? Will offshore drilling really make things better for you?


Let me take just a second to review the top 10 reasons offshore drilling is such a bad idea:




10. Offshore oil drilling won't impact gas prices today, and it won't have a significant impact on gas prices in the future.


9. This is nothing more than a money grab by the oil companies - who are already making record-breaking profits.


8. We burn 25% of the world's oil here in the U.S., but we have only 3% of the world's oil reserves. Even if all offshore oil magically came to market today, the vast majority of our oil would continue to be imported, and we wouldn't see price relief at the pump.


7. The current moratorium was put in place decades ago to protect us from the danger of oil spills along our coastlines and beaches.


6. Burning fossil fuels like oil causes global warming, which causes stronger hurricanes, which will threaten the very offshore drilling rigs being proposed, which will contribute to even more global warming.


5. To avoid the worst impacts of global warming, we need to switch from fossil fuels to renewable energy within the next 10 years. The billions of dollars that would be spent on offshore oil drilling just postpones the inevitable transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy.


4. Oil exploration requires massive seismic testing - which threatens whales and dolphins.


3. Oil prices are set on the global oil market, so American oil is no cheaper than Saudi oil. We won't get a discount for oil drilled in the U.S.


2. We can't solve the world's energy problems with the same drilling that created them.


1. Renewable energy is available now, so it's time to walk away from fossil fuels and toward a clean energy future.


Take Action: Tell Congress What YOU Think About Offshore Oil Drilling


Even if we could tap into all of the energy stored in the Earth's reserves - coal, oil, and natural gas - it would equal the energy in just 20 days of sunshine. It's time to invest in renewable energy and leave oil to the dinosaurs. It's time for an energy revolution.


Power to the people,
