To Drill or Not to Drill?
Sharif T. Walker
I have decided that I agree with the side of searching for oil in on United States soil as an immediate aggressive action to the energy issue. I believe this considering the opposing argument to search for alternative sources of energy such as wind and solar power can have a tremendous set back to the citizens of the United States. In the case, that most automobiles, locomotive transports, water vessels, and aircraft all are fueled by an oil energy source and would be a problem if the sudden change to other sources are immediate.

Due to the anticipations that solar and wind power sources can ultimately be lowered in dollar prices and raise consumption by the marketed consumer opposed to the current gas prices, I feel it will bring a positive change to the economy and all who surround it. Also, the immediate investment to shift to alternative energy development will create jobs in the industry (Appleby, 2009). The option of producing more oil domestically is the Bakken Shale formation in North Dakota and Montana, which has the potential to produce almost one million barrels per day (Clark, 2010).
The key to overcoming resistance to change is to examine you’re my first impression of the problems and issues. To overcome the habits that hinder my thinking of the opposing side, I must find faults and create an argument that thoroughly states a valid question regarding that fault. I agree with the side to search for oil on our own land and I agree with the opposing side, to search for alternative energy needs, which are wind and solar energy. I propose that an immediate dedication to finding oil on United States soil because of the sense of urgency needed to solve the current energy source concerns. Because of the pressing issue of needing a quick solution to the energy source problem it is my first impression that I side with the views of drilling for oil in the United States.
