Sun Asks: Is the price of affordable fuel drilling off Virginia's shores?

The Baltimore Sun's website has a good place to stay current about environmental issues around the Chesapeake Bay -- appropriately enough it's called Bay & Environment. Two days ago, they launched a companion blog -- this is another you'll want to add to your RSS feeds.

One of the first subjects covered is the Chesapeake Bay Foundation's request that Congress not approve a proposal by the Bush administration to allow drilling more than 50 miles out in federal waters.

What do you think? Are rising gas prices worth risking the wildlife refuge on Assateague Island or habitats critical to the Chesapeake Bay's blue crabs and rockfish?
