Oh yes, let’s drill for a lot more off-shore oil. They have great, green technology now!
Although this Administration is not responsible for this huge oil leak, it highlights their boneheaded policy of greatly expanded off-shore drilling. It looks like this could be almost as bad as the 1989 Alaska catastrophe with the Exxon Valdez . . . and the petroleum keeps leaking out of the wrecked bottom of the oil platform. It could take 90 days to stop the leak!
The oil is now just offshore. It will hit a wildlife management area first!
