Offshore Drilling , better then Midwest Farmers?

By
Real Estate Agent with REMAX ADVANTAGE REALTY

After reading an article from CNN on the internet this morning I had some thoughts on Offshore Drilling in the Gulf of Mexico!

It seems there are people for and against the resumption of drilling in the Gulf of Mexico! The ones that are against it appear to be holding that position based on the potential effects on the pollution and effects to sea life in  the Gulf.

While I am for the resumption of drilling, I also hold dear the quality of the water and the necessity to preserve the ability of sea life to be plentiful! With today’s technology and ecology awareness, I feel confident that there will be a strong effort made to ensure the water quality.

Weicome to Active Rain.  You can learn a lot here - and teach too.

 

Good luck with the blog.

 

Rather than more senseless drilling how about some real developemnt that will get us away from oil all together. New leases won't get more oil for 10 years anyway.

I just wanted to welcome you to active rain! This is a great site, and has been profitable for me.  In a year, I've personally received clients and referrals that have exceeded over thirty thousand in gross commissions - directly attributable to this site!  I tell you that to help keep you blogging.  It's free - there's no better price!  Blog about all sorts of stuff, not just real estate.  People are checking out your blog to learn about you, and what makes you tick.  That's how you score clients off of here.  Be real, and blog often.  Most of all have fun!

If you ever need a good agent down in South Carolina, let me know!
