On another thread, it was mentioned by someone that there is NO reason for the environmentalists to be upset about our dependence on oil. She suggested that we should continue to use antiquated drilling practices in our own country(countries) to bring oil (and I assume, other natural resources) to the surface simply because those resources are there and "available" to us. So...rather then derail that thread, I brought it over here...what do you think? Should there be a moratorium on drilling and mining until safer, more updated procedures can be developed? Should our governments put more resources into green technologies, or should they put our resources into drilling and mining, no matter how unsafe?
