Once it's gone, it's gone... a bunch of already very rich people will be even richer and this country would have advanced not one single inch into a future of clean power.... instead we will have destroyed one of the wildest, most beautiful places on earth.... oil will have soaked into every inch of the sea, soil, permafrost, and made our air even filthier than it already is. The ONLY energy sources we should be spending money on are WIND AND SOLAR.... leave the filth in the ground! We citizens of this world are sick - SO sick of our habitat, our environment, our wildlife being destroyed to enrich the already powerful and obscenely wealthy individuals who push for this garbage. Jobs my ass! There are jobs by the tens of thousands just WAITING in the wind and solar sectors. Stop this ugly, ceaseless, highly destructive lust for oil! They had an enormous oil spill already in Alaska... a mess that has NEVER been cleaned up! And another spill will be here till the end of time!
