John McCain and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s “is ‘drill, baby, drill.” Short sighted and foolish AND more irrelevant as oil prices fall. It would take the oil companies 10 years to put the entire infrastructure into place to extract that oil that McCain is talking about. The United States consumes the most oil of any country and contributes the most pollution. Now that oil prices are falling consumers seem to be going right back to their old habits as pickup trucks and SUV sales are climbing.
When I look at Obama’s plan, I see a clear long-term vision that will put us in the winner’s circle as a nation. His energy policies will reduce our dependency on foreign oil (see my posts on both their policies).
When you vote, consider the fact that the economy will improve over time. Global warming, left unchecked, will destroy our future and most likely plunge our country into another economic crisis.
