With massive oil spills still choking Gulf Coast wetlands to death, it is practically obscene that Congress would be rushing to hand over the rest of our coastal inheritance to the oil giants.You’d be hard-pressed to find a more misguided response to energy shortages in the post-hurricane season than opening up more protected areas to drilling. Is it possible to look at pictures of the Louisiana coast and still dismiss the EDF’s  report on the vital role of coastal ecosystems and barrier islands in tempering tropical storms?
