Balancing business and environment just brings disaster closer

Shell Arctic Ocean Drilling Stands to Open New Oil Frontier - NYTimes.com: "In blessing Shell’s move into the Arctic, Mr. Obama continues his efforts to balance business and environmental interests, seemingly project by project. He pleased environmentalists by delaying the Keystone XL pipeline from Canada and by adopting tough air standards for power plants, yet he has also delighted business concerns by rejecting an ozone standard deemed too costly to the economy."

Environmentalism is the most profound realism there is
We can document and prove out  
coming environmental disasters one by one
Every time we make a concession to the short term
we increase the severity of the long term
At some point the demonstrable truth must be told
before the predictable takes hold
We need a new economy whose signature
is not drill drill drill but sustainability
