I would encourage a wider distance, myself. But I think the more important thing here is actually getting away from fossil fuels in the first place, thus making any need for such regulations obsolete. The president campaigned on a promise to make America great again by helping the dying coal industry. This industry has been in fast decline for nearly a century, mostly due to lack of resources, and the fact that tech is the new global industry. So while the president is busy trying to cosy up to coal country, he does more damage by promising to bring back an industry that has long since seen its Zenith. He doesn’t need to bring back a dying industry, he needs to help those who built their lives on that industry, find a path into the current century. In the meantime, while we are all busy trying to convince him of that incontrovertible fact, perhaps we can protect the lives of the people living near these drilling sights. I used to live in New Mexico, and remember quite a few times where drillers accidentally ignited the oil they were drilling for, and could only just let it burn out. And those fields were hundreds of miles from civilians. Imagine what it would’ve been like if those accidents happened down the street from where your kids or grandkids go to school. Because even the most privileged private schools around, cannot prevent air pollution from burning oil, from getting to their kids. Like the Masque of the Red Death, it’ll find a way in. And I don’t think you want their lives on your conscience, just because Trump has tapped into the heart of a group of people who refuse to see reason.
