Fueling the fire

None of us wants to see oil exploration and drilling near Moab; and yet, by claiming the precious desert as our back yard and traveling here and there in gasoline powered automobiles to enjoy it, are we not fueling the fire?

Perhaps the right to point fingers at Bush, the BLM and Big Business exists only when we are willing to subtract some of our contribution to the demand from the economic equation.
