Oil drilling in the Arctic: Don’t allow it, Mr. President

A careful read of this NY Times article on this subject contains one very glaring error: The Arctic Ocean is now nearly ice-free, and humans’ reliance on the fossil fuel known as petroleum (or oil, if you will) is a big part of the problem. Humans, especially, it seems, those who live in McMansionville of the suburbs, have forgotten how to walk. Hell, I regularly watched suburbanites in northeastern Pennsylvania get into their cars and drive a hundred yards to the end of their driveway just to grab the day’s postal mail from their rural mailbox. What a waste, and the president’s plan to continue dependence on oil by allowing drilling in the Arctic is a non-starter.
