This is a hard choice to make because at the same time while we are drilling we are getting oil that is needed to other purposes but I do agree that we need to go green no matter what. I believe we need to look at both sides of the situation and find a solution that will help both parties out. I do agree that drilling oil is the way to go but we need to find alternative ways on drilling without harming the ozone layer and earth. By thinking of the fall backs of going green in drilling oil, we might lose the number of employments there currently are, domestic production and ever-increasing imports. By continuing to drill we are either saving money from importing oil from other countries. We need to start thinking about the future and how it would affect us if we don’t go green. I do believe in solar power because that would promise a better recovery for America and also grant us more jobs. For example talking about solar energy, I have seen a movie where its in the future and how it would look. I don’t think I could adapt to that type of atmosphere because people aren’t allowed to go outside because of the hot temperatures. This is likely to happen if we continue to damage the ozone layer and continue damaging the earths surface that protects us. As we can se and heard in news, its getting hotter and this is a cause of all the damage that we have done. What’s to happen later on, are we going to damage ourselves because of greed? This is a serious topic and something needs to be done to save us from a future filled with suffering. Going green and using solar power will help with pollution, the only pollution produced as a result of solar panels is the manufacturing of these devices in factories, transportation of the goods, and installation. A pro of solar power is the ability to harness electricity in remote locations that are not linked to a national grid. A prime example of this is in space, where satellites are powered by high efficiency solar cells. Sometimes...
