Time to Get Off the Oil Tit

From an email from WeCanSolveIt and Al Gore:
Skyrocketing energy prices. The climate crisis. Unraveling financial markets. Wars that just happen to be in places with a lot of oil. These are all just different faces of exactly the same thing. As I've said in the past, we're borrowing money from China to buy oil from the Persian Gulf to burn it in ways that destroy the future of human civilization. And every bit of that has to change. (Al Gore)
The Alliance for Climate Protection has put together an ad that tells this simple story. And we're going to put it on national cable TV. If they can raise an additional $80,000, they will run it on 60 Minutes and 20/20 this week.

Hello. My name is Edgar and I'm an editor at OpposingViews.com, the debate website. Since we both cover energy and environmental issues, I thought I'd drop you a note. I would've e-mailed you but I couldn't find an address.
See, we're currently having a discussion about whether or not the U.S. should allow offshore oil drilling. You can see it here:
http://www.opposingviews.com/questions/should-the-us-allow-offshore-oil-drilling
Although vetted experts are the ones doing the debating, anyone can contribute by choosing a side and posting comments about the experts' arguments.
Check it out and, if you have the time, let me know what you think at eacosta@opposingviews.com
Thanks!
