See this report from The Atlantic’s Niraj Chokshi, who argued last week that the moratorium could acutally pose a great environmental threat:
The six-month ban on drilling in the Gulf of Mexico could encourage companies to move their rigs to other parts of the world, increasing the nation’s reliance on imported oil. But it would also increase our reliance on long-distance shipping to bring that oil to the U.S. and increase the probability of oil being spilled at sea. Over the last half-century, transport vessels have been responsible for almost two-thirds of all marine oil spills, according to data arranged by Tulane University professors.
How can the Gulf and its inhabitants return to normal?
What about BP and BO? Helping or not?
What say you, Moore TEA Citizens?
