As a veteran, I find myself in complete agreement. It's not an either-or question. The key is to direct oil and gas development to the right places, and to set aside some lands that are too special to drill.
We must not allow large-scale oil and gas field development via fracking to pollute and deplete park watersheds, foul park air quality, fragment habitat for park wildlife, and create excessive industrial sound, and light pollution near our parks.
Our energy challenges are shared among nations, and their resolution requires both domestic action and international cooperation. A concerted global effort to end the secrecy that often surrounds energy development is a good place to start.
