to start with, it's important to stand with those affected in the gulf. and while there might be slight oil reserves in NC, companies will still drill if money is to be made. and gas drilling has some of the very same risks as oil drilling.
in this country we still use some oil for heating. by expanding renewables we could eliminate this need. we could also electrify our light auto fleet reducing the need to expand drilling. people need to start thinking about our future rather than staying in a small minded box.
