Is coal mining or oil drilling more damaging to the environment?

    It depends on the regulations that are placed on the use of these resources. There are laws for burning coal and there are laws for obtaining and using oil. Right now, oil drilling is definately damaging the environment more than coal mining is. Look at the amount of damage the oil leak in the gulf has caused already. The spill is getting larger every day, and we’re expecting that we won’t have a solution for it until August. It’s going to leak for 4 months. This is really damaging the sea ecosystem.
