The signs are unmistakable. Fossil fuel usage is exacerbating the warming of the Earth. Destroying lands that nourish the planet to produce still more killer fossil fuels is exactly the opposite of what must be done to preserve life. Which is better, life without fossil fuels and the associated profits or fossil fuels and the associated profits without life? Should be a no-brainer.

Oh, that's all we need. As if there weren't already too much drilling--let's increase supply by ruining the environment, run out sooner, destroying trees ... those oil companies just don't get it, do they?
Or maybe the problem is just that they're trying to get it all...

OIL DRILLING SHOULD BE SCALED DOWN ON THE PLANET PER SE. THERE ARE OTHER FAR MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY SOURCES THAT HAVE BEEN AROUND SINCE THE BEGINNING OF TIME - BUT WE HUMANS TOOK THE EASY OPTION - DRILLING AND MINING - CAUSING UNTOLD DAMAGE.

The good ole oil BOYS get not only obscene remuneration and stock options, whilst destroying our ONLY PLANET! While our own bought & owned politicians give these POS tax subsidies! So we the American tax payers are complicit in the crimes they commit, not a pretty picture. Why are the oil companies NOT spending some money on alternative resources? They need to do some spending on research and development NOW!

WHY do we need oil???? Life on Earth survived perfectly well without it prior to this obsession of drilling all over Mother Earth. The Earth will soon not be safe to walk upon because everything will have been sucked out of her.

Incessant drilling+ stupidity= Concrete Jungle. Bare, barren & lifeless planet. The ones who are causing the damage must be stopped here & now. Picture a life without flora & fauna: SCARY! It's reality unfolding as we speak!

More money for the Big Oil Companies, and these Governing Countries are letting them. Drilling in the Rain Forest, it not a good ideal, although this do not surprise me they will drill any where someone think there is oil. I signed the petition because I know that this is a wrong thing to be allowed we are killing ourselves over oil and coal, what's the matter with these people?

Remember back in the 70's when there was a global shortage of oil? They told us that we had found all the oil there was. This make what there was that much more valuable. So, they raised the cost to consumers. THEY LIED> Seems that there is oil every where. They want to pollute the least able areas to defend themselves to get at it. China hasn't even started to extract what they have. They may never need to. China is starting the largest green power generation effort in the world. They just might stop the need to burn something to make electricity.
