"Drill baby drill"

As the methane continues leaking from Total's Elgin drilling platfrom, off the east coast of Scotland and Shell gets US Dept of Interior approval for its emergency response plan and so overcomes the last major legal hurdle to its plans to drill in the Arctic this Summer, despite the shock expressed by some UK MPs, I am saddened. 
Our greed for fossil fuel energy seems to be driving us over the edge.  With all the environmental issues arising from our consumption of fossil fuel, it seems amazing to me that governments are licensing such endeavours.  We should be building for the future not scrabbling for a last fix.
