7-14 Should federally protected lands be drilled for oil and ot

Marshall, Mo.

"Well, I think so. We're going to run out of oil one of these days, and if we can get it here and not from some other country, why not?"

Jason Moulin,

KU student,


"Sure. We need oil."

Amanda Brixey,

home school student,


"No, because it's wrong. It completely gets rid of all the land we have. It completely kills animals and their habitats. And our cities are big enough."

Michael Schnebly,

customer care,


"That's a tough one. Probably not. They'd probably mess up the land. ... I'm sure there are other places in the world that have more oil."
