Let’s tackle the real problem

By From page A12 | March 16, 2014

Bakken Shale crude, as I understand, is some of the dirtiest oil to be found anywhere on Earth. Why, then, are we concerned about its being shipped through Davis at all, much less the dangers of our 10 mph curve?

Would it not be better to join an effort to halt the extraction of this filthy fossil fuel, and instead of “gagging at gnats and swallowing camels,” as the saying goes, put oil and gas subsidies (which are very generous) toward green solutions to our climate crisis, which is very real and happening now!
