The True Cost of Energy
In a brief response to the horrific oil rig explosion off the coast of Louisiana, I would like to point out some signs that speak to the human cost of oil drilling & coal mining.
1). Quoting the article, " The blast could prove to be one of the deadliest U.S. offshore drilling accidents of the past half-century."
2). April has also seen the worst coal mining disaster in the last fifty-years with the mine collapse in West Virginia.
3). As our country and our planet become more desperate to use these non-renewable resources, occurrences such as these will become more commonplace.
My thoughts & prayers go out for the victims & the families. At Below the Surface, we seek renewable energy as a solution (solar, biofuels, wind, etc). These are safer solutions that do not endanger humans or the planet as much as oil and/or coal. Be safe, Be the Solution!
