Spill Baby Spill replaces Drill Baby Drill

The Gulf Coast oil spill is visible from Space

Thousands upon thousands of gallons of oil are leaking out in to the sea. Destroying the lives of fishermen as well as animals and fish.

Half a million dollars or £300 thousand pounds could have stopped this. A few dayshours of the profits made by BP.

Almost every single Nation in the World requires by law a remote shut off facility to ensure that oil rig accidents like this do not cause the level of damage that this is causing and will cause.

$500,000. That is all it would have cost.

The US however does not require that unnecessary burden on business.

Republicans just want more and more oil. They even attacked the President for not opening even more oil fields.

At the same time, conservatives — who were chanting “Drill, baby, drill” two years ago — reacted cautiously, displeased with Obama’s declaration that some coastal territory would remain untouched. In addition to Bristol Bay, the Atlantic coast from New Jersey northward would be closed to exploration, as would the entire Pacific coastline. The proposal is a “step in the right direction,” said Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell in a statement, “but a small one that leaves enormous amounts of American energy off-limits.”

“Drill Baby Drill”. Everyone who chanted that rant in 2008 as if it was some biblical truth should be required to help clean up the mess.
