While offshore oil and gas drilling is the slowest, dirtiest, most hazardous and expensive way to produce energy - investing in clean energy would create four times as many jobs as investing the same amount of money in oil.
We need energy efficiency coupled with new, advanced, sophisticated, clean renewable energy technologies such as solar energy.
What we can do is thank Florida Senators Mel Martinez and Bill Nelson for their continued strong opposition to drilling and spilling oil on America’s best beaches, drilling that would ruin our state’s number one economic resource: our beach sand.
People in other states can help by getting their Senators to take Florida drilling out of the Senate’s energy bill.
Renewable energy technology works extremely well in an iPad world!
