The bias is apparent when the article posts a non-related photo. Keep drilling, don't trust liberal politicians.

I agree. There's no need to stop offshore drilling! Maybe the Exxon Valdez destroyed the coast of Alaska, and okay maybe this BP/Halliburton nightmare has destroyed the Gulf Coast. But we need the cleanup work.
And we still have the East Coast around South Carolina. That's hasn't been screwed up yet, and I don't think Southern people care about oil in the ocean since they don't surf that much probably.
And the California beaches are just for hippies and liberals and dolphins. We could try there too. I don't care if the Malibu Ocean turns to black sludge as long as Barbara Streisand can smell it.
All these executives blaming each other is just wrong though. They look like a bunch of criminal from the gang that couldn't shoot straight. Maybe Vice President Cheney and them should have some more secret meetings to get this worked out.
California was never included in the offshore drilling bill and proposal from before this disaster. We hippies, liberals and dolphins really like our seas, beaches and channel islands. The gulf states wanted it, now they got it. Kiss the redneck-riviera and the once beautiful sugary sand of the panhandle resorts goodbye.
Under current law, it is thought that any drillers liability is limited to about $3 billion: that won't even start to cover the damage this will do to the seafood and tourism industries. We'll see how "private industry" controlled by a few oligarchs takes care of thier responsibility.

We learned decades ago it just isn't worth it. And I doubt Babs gives a hoot what you think, and I know most Californians don't.

"Under current law," said Steve, "it is thought that any drillers liability is limited to about $3 billion: that won't even start to cover the damage this will do to the seafood and tourism industries."

We'll see how "private industry" controlled by a few oligarchs takes care of their responsibility. Sure, and what else is new?

That our famous globalists bribed our officials for a "good cause"?
