Letter to the Editor | More oil drilling isn'tthe right answer

Thanks to The News-Gazette editorial board, all energy problems will now be solved with expanded domestic oil production. Hopefully, Southern Illinois will become another west Texas or North Dakota oil field. These optimistic pronouncements undermine the efforts of our university and Extension staffs to do research on and promote the "Energy Transformation" from carbon-based fuels to renewables like solar and wind.
