I found this fascinating quote today:

Sierra Club President Michael Brune has been the most vocal in recent interviews and in a blog on Bloomberg about the need for alternate energy saying there is no safe way to drill for oil in the oceans. “This disaster is an impetus to halt our dependence on oil completely and move to a clean energy future fast. Cost-benefit analysis shows this is the smart approach. President Barack Obama and Congress need to develop a clear, ambitious vision for weaning us off our addiction to oil within, say, 20 years. Dirty fuels are undermining our national security and contributing to the future disasters that climate disruption will bring.”smartmeters.com, Oil Spill Prompts Call for Wind and Solar, May 2010
