Local Activist Says Offshore Drilling Blows
So there's your offshore oil drilling on display in the gulf coast. And the giant oil spill that's threatening coastlines along the gulf is causing more than a few to rethink the idea of increased drilling. Although La Crosse's Barb Frank, on the national board of the Sierra Club has never been a fan of offshore drilling. She says it risks too much environmental destruction and degradation. The Republican governor of Florida says he's re-thinking support for drilling near the state's coastlines. But the Obama administration, so far, is standing by its plans to expand drilling off the coast.
