If we ever doubted that the world is headed for environmental disaster, the news about using the melting Arctic for oil exploration seems to confirm it. At a time when the world is crying out for the urgent utilisation of renewable energies because of the CO2 that our use of oil puts into the atmosphere, we instead choose to make the problem even worse by drilling for even more oil. It is said that the definition of insanity is trying the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. The short-sightedness of this move is simply astonishing, not to mention frightening.
