If we don't recognise the negative effects of our 'profit at any price' philosophy we wont have a civilization worth shutting down.

Gerald, you didn't answer my question.  Are you proposing that we shut down civilization?

Are there any oil wells disrupting your natural local habitat Donald? You talk about the need for practical exploitation of potential oil reserves but it seems to me you have an enthusiasm for exploitation only in area's that  are outside your comfort zone. Unbelievable as it may seem the arctic is a designated nature reserve for the world community, not a jump in jump out rape of peoples heritage.

Gerald, are you proposing that we just shut down civilization?  Whether we like it or not, we still need fuel for transportation, energy and heat.  We are trying to find new, more futuristic methods for doing all of that, but until we invent those new methods, we still have to maintain what we have.  To do that, we need to maintain a supply of oil, and to do that we have to drill more oil wells. 

I like wild life as much as you do, and living in the woods, as we are doing, we are surrounded by everything from shrews, to elk, bear, coyotes, racoons, cougars, and bobcats.

And I still like to drive my car into town, and that requires oil..

We must beware of drawing lines in the sand, for or against being a simple matter of ticking a box. A little insight is worth more than every predetermined idea ever imagined.

Do we stand by, in the name of progress, and ignore the decimation of our wildlife.!!!!!!!!!!! By what criterion do we measure progress? It's not as clear cut as it appears. Maybe we should sit back and take a long hard look.

Comment by Gerald Payne on May 16, 2015 at 3:03pm

I'm  well aware of that Donald. Don't you consider arctic exploitation a danger to wildlife?

They aren't drilling in Seattle.  They are parking the rig there until the Arctic thaws a little more.
