In the Atlantic Ocean, Is It Both Oil and Wind?

Hosted by  • 

Five years after the Gulf oil spill, the Obama Administration has opened up thousands of offshore acres from Virginia to Georgia for oil and gas drilling. It's also made the ocean available for wind farms far out at sea, abiding by the energy strategy the President calls "all of the above." State Governors pushed for oil and gas drilling to create jobs.  But environmentalists say wind would create twice the energy and twice the employment -- without the pollution or the greenhouse emissions.
