We also need to remember that OCS [Outer Continental Shelf] development has been going on for the last fifty years, and it has been going on in a way that is both safe and protective of the environment.
A month ago BP’s Deep Horizon drilling rig exploded killing eleven workers and causing an environmental disaster. Enough said.
