back in January, I mentioned drilling in Alaska in passing. I’m mentioning it now, so that if you read this blog by feed, you’ll see my old views before you read what I am about to write. And also, to tell you to get some coffee, because my next post will probably be quite lengthy. Here’s what I said then
There are not many causes I support actively year-round. I am more a â€œcall to actionâ€ type causist. I do take measures to reduce our garbage and such. I like to tread lightly upon the earth, but at the same time, I realize I am authorized to take dominion of it. That doesnâ€™t mean to use resources unwisely, though.
I do think environmentalism often goes to far. The same folks who are screaming about the price of gasoline are also screaming that we shouldnâ€™t drill for oil in Alaska. To me that doesnâ€™t make much sense.
I hope to be back by mid-afternoon with the next post. It will take awhile to write.
