Oil drilling in the Everglades

I guess it's not IN the Everglades but it is damn close. I'm all for reasonable drilling in this country but not in tremendously sensitive areas like the area proposed in this article.

Over every mountain there is a path, although it may not be seen from the valley

Thanks for posting this, Rik. We are just now starting to turn around many years of damage done in the Everglades. There really MUST be sensitive areas that are off limits to drilling.

I finally found Cow Creek. It's at the end of the Road to Nowhere!
