Oil Spill Could Reach Fla. Beaches In Coming Days
Governor Charlie Crist says the horrific oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is another reason the nation should develop more clean energy resources.
The governor and U.S. Senate candidate said if the latest oil leak doesn't make a case for more solar and nuclear energy, he doesn't know what will.
"You've got, at the latest estimate, about 210,000 gallons of oil pumping out of the Gulf of Mexico every single day," Crist said. "You don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure out that that's an enormous amount of potential sludge."
Crist said the American public must move toward clean energy "as quickly as we can."
Crist said the spill could reach Florida's panhandle beaches in the coming days.
