Arctic Drilling Shortsighted
Drilling for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge would be a completely wrong choice. The oil under the refuge will only supply America with six months worth of gas -- not worth destroying the many species of wildlife there.
We need to learn to conserve and become less dependent on oil. There are many alternatives to driving. If we learn to adapt non- car habits, we won't have to face the rising gas prices.
