Allow drilling but make environmental failures extremely expensive for oil companies as an incentive to make safety a priority. 6 years ago from a Green in Wooster, OH

Use our own oil, instead of borrowing from other countries. At the same time, alternative fuels must be developed. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Dover, NJ
With extremely strict environmental, technical, structural, and operational oversight by the Federal government, it can be done safely, however the penalties for damages to the environment need to be FAR higher. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Raritan, NJ

We should re-energize the EPA more diligently appreciate environmental impact and to balance those risks against the incremental benefits from particular environmental invasions while also significantly incentivizing development of alternate energy sources. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Bellaire, TX
Yes, but only if the standards required for off-shore drilling are set and maintained far better than allowing oil companies to lie in environmental impact reports (especially about their ability to contain a spill and provide for recovery). 6 years ago from a Green in Bloomington, CA
Yes, but oil spill cleanup should not be a tax break, this should be an after-tax deduction from profits on top of all costs for the cleanup and compensation. 6 years ago from a Green in Huntingdon, PA
