    Sadly this is the case. Until we start using real alternatives instead of just looking for more or something else to burn, these and other problems will keep getting worse.

    You may have a point from an Environmental | Political point of view, however, thus relates to other recent hacks as cited Here

    Quite true from an environmental view. I don't consider it political, just basic fact. There's only so much oil to burn. Unfortunately, hacking and posting seems to be the standard response for groups like Anonymous for all "adversaries". The idea of opposing arctic drilling and drawing attention to it is great, but without an alternative, it's pointless. There are no safe, easy, and environmentally safe places left to drill. If Anonymous happens to find proof of big oil interfering with alternate energy development, either directly or via governments or uncovers proof of them manipulating global warming data, withholding energy efficient designs for fuel systems, etc, then by all means they should expose it and do some real good.
