It's not even primarily about "rising above money and greed" to protect our unique planet. The fact is that deriving energy from fossil fuels is an OBSOLETE technology. It is more expensive than solar, wind, and geothermal, so it is absurd for anybody to be wrangling in the courts for the "rights" to pursue this polluting, pointless energy source. There is more money to be made exploring & developing clean new technology, and more jobs to be found teaching, learning, training, exploring & applying the clean, cheaper new technologies. Wake up & stop living in the past, Congress!!
