Question and answer
Q: Throughout his presidential campaign, and since taking office in January 2009, President Barack Obama has pushed forward his agenda to free America from dependency on foreign oil. A growth of green
jobs is predicted in the coming years as new technologies, such as solar power and clean coal, are pursued and expanded. Meanwhile, many people and opposing politicians believe this is an unnecessary and expensive push. They state we could just continue drilling off the Gulf Coast, Alaska, and other areas within our country that are currently not being explored. • Write a paper of approximately 500 words in which you do the following: o Decide which side you agree with the most. o Explain what key habits are hindering your thinking when looking at the opposing view and defending your own. o Describe what you can do to overcome those habits that are hindering your thinking.
A: I believe that pushing for more "green" jobs and cleaner, environmentally friendly fuels is important. Continuing drilling is not going to solve anything. If anything, there will be more oil spills like the one off the gulf cost. [ The only reason we're not pushing harder for a "greener" country is the fact that oil companies are lobbying politicians, which is sad, but that's how the American
government is at the moment. ]

User: On March 30, 2010, Obama partially reinstated Bush administration proposals to open certain offshore areas along the Atlantic coastline, the eastern Gulf of Mexico and the north coast of Alaska to oil and natural gas drilling. The proposals had earlier been set aside by President Obama after they were challenged in court on environmental grounds.[226] On May 27, 2010, Obama extended a moratorium on offshore drilling permits after the April 20, 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill which is considered to be the worst oil spill in U.S. history.[227][228] Although British Petroleum took responsibility for the disaster and its ongoing after effects, Obama began a federal investigation along with forming a bipartisan commission to review the incident and methods to avoid it in the future.[229][230][231] Obama visited the Gulf Coast on May 2 and May 28 and expressed his frustration on the June 8 NBC Today Show, by saying "I don't sit around just talking to experts because this is a college seminar. We talk to these folks because they potentially have the best answers, so I know whose ass to kick."[232] Obama's response to the disaster has drawn confusion and criticism within segments of the media and public.[233]
