In light of the recent oil spill in the gulf, should America proceed with new offshore drilling?
Asked at Speedway Shell, 1733 Mass. on May 14, 2010
“Regardless of the oil spill, i don’t think that we should explore further (drilling) options because we need to plan for the future a little bit better, and that should start now.”
“The alternative to stop drilling might be worse than taking the risk in continuing to grill. We need to find safer and better ways of doing it.”
“I believe yes, they should. I think we need to be, as a country, more capable of taking care of ourselves than relying on other nations, and we need to figure out a way, if this happens again, that we’re more capable of fixing it a lot faster.”
“Yeah, but further offshore drilling because less animals will be harmed in the process in the event there is a spill.”
