we still have oil right now in the world for cars, boats, planes, and more. So why do we need to care about the environment? We need to focus on the moment, and as for the moment, the United States should not adopt a clean energy stand for oil dependency. What we are doing right now seems to be working fine for us and should continue working for a very long time.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
