Short sighted special interests

To paraphrase Senator John McCain… “It’s not a question of whether or not we’ll use the natural gas under Lake Erie. We’re already doing that,” Sonney said. “It’s a question of whether we control our own destiny and harvest our own energy assets to our benefit or continue to leave energy resources in the hands of others.”

Actually, it’s a question of whether we’re going to be stampeded into drilling under the Great Lakes for negligible short- and long-term public benefit to satisfy a special interest. If the modest amount of energy under the Great Lakes is valuable now, it will be more valuable later.
 
The drill now mantra is tiresome and bogus.
