How Much Oil Can We Live With?

The two most Endangered Species in Florida,
Florida Panther
perhaps in the world, now share one more 
threat to their existence.
Right now in the Florida legislation there are
not one, but two, Bills on the Docket to support
drilling for oil in parks all over the state.
Two of the Parks on the list are where the
Panther and the Ghost Orchid are presently
hanging on by the narrowest thread.
This latest assault on them, may be the final one
and push them to their deaths.
In a state with nearly non stop wind and sunshine,
could someone please explain why we continue to
punish this planet with our archaic addiction to fossil fuel?
What will it take for Americans to finally let go of this dirty,
destructive source of energy?
How many oil spills can the Earth survive before she just gives up?
What is that saying, "garbage in, garbage out?"
It is time for us to refuse to allow Big Oil to own America any more.
