    The So Eastern Coast is opening up too.
    The oil bonanza in the USA will continue for a generation.

    Soon enough CA will have to get on board and start drilling off the Coast too...

    Paul are you an EcoNazi? There are so few oil “disasters” they're statistically irrelevant.
    Its like having an irrational fear of flying.
    Silly boy.

    @3. He's not an EcoNazi. He's a Nazi.
    These 'environmentalists' need to get with reality. A simple example. You're walking through a forest. You see a deer. The deer doesn't see you. You are, literally, starving to death. You haven't eaten anything for 10 days. Save the pretty deer? Or eat? Answer is obvious. You eat!
    But I do have some thoughts for 'environmentalists' so that they can sensibly achieve their objectives. Down to the local butcher or supermarket. Strip naked. Position your neck under the bacon slicer. According to material I've read, 'human' tastes like pork. Who doesn't like pork? Slice it all up, plenty of veg, gravy, apple sauce. Fewer 'environmentalists', more meat. Or throw the carcase into the nearest pig pen. Pigs don't have any problem eating humans!
