    U.S. Said to Allow Drilling Without Needed Permits - NYTimes.com

    The minerals agency since January 2009 has approved at least three huge lease sales, 103 seismic blasting projects and 346 drilling plans. Agency records also show that permission for those projects and plans was granted without getting the permits required under federal law.
    In a letter from September 2009, obtained by The New York Times, NOAA accused the minerals agency of a pattern of understating the likelihood and potential consequences of a major spill in the gulf and understating the frequency of spills that have already occurred there.
    Managers at the agency have routinely overruled staff scientists whose findings highlight the environmental risks of drilling, according to a half-dozen current or former agency scientists.
    Those approvals, federal records show, include one for the well drilled by the Deepwater Horizon rig, which exploded on April 20, killing 11 workers and resulting in thousands of barrels of oil spilling into the gulf each day.

    I said new information, not redundant information. Your links are just saying the same thing over and over which I've already responded to, so I'll sit back and wait until there's something NEW.

    Getting the size of the spill correct is new. Of course you may be set on the 5000 bbl/day figure for good.

    No drilling in America means continued reliance upon backwards regimes and a continued burden to "protect" the stability of the Middle East even as they breed the very scum who blame us for all that is wrong with their world.

    Figure it out dumbasses.

    Oh man, I'm so sorry guys, it looks like they're getting the situation under control. Oh well, so much for 3x/8x Exxon Valdez. Maybe next time we'll have something valid for you get all worked up over.
    Jerry, it's people like you who try to make every issue a right versus left thang that makes it so hard for both sides to work together when it's a really important issue, like this is. Contrary to the right wing's talking points, that you seem to march to, nobody wants this oil spill to get worse. The quicker it gets controlled and shut down the better. Nobody wins if this gets worse.

    Seriously, I didn't read more than that.

    It's "people like me" who stand up to serve and defend the country, so I don't give a **** what some anon's opinion of me is.

    If you have anything of substance to bring to the thread, especially something of technical significances (as opposed to political significance), please let me know. Otherwise, we have a Basement, you can take it there.

    A little touchy on the obvious, ehh? What in the hell does being in the military have to do with being outed as a partisan? All of your "opinions" of this spill have been that it's no big deal, that the left is making a mountain out of a molehill. "People like you" who use their service as an excuse to browbeat anyone who exposes your true colors are a waste of time discussing anything with.

    I brought substance and showed your article to be partisan because it didn't print all the facts. I wasn't trying to make points, just showing another opinion. It was you who had to slink down and go the rightee, personal attack route, as usual. I'm sorry you don't like, and can't take, the truth. If you're going to dish it out you should learn to take it too.

    My service grounds my identity and confidence in myself. I'm sorry that intimidates you into reacting when someone doesn't give a **** about your opinion of them.

    As for my article, I got home from drill, logged to see what the world was up to, clicked on the "Latest Headlines" button at the top of FireFox and found something which was news to me. If it's biased, that's fine, I didn't write it so I have nothing to worry about. I read every other article sourced on this thread so it's not like I have a limited scope of news consumption relative to your own. My interest in the story is technical, not political, so from my perspective biased sources which give more technical information are of more value than unbiased sources which only discuss opinion or policy.

    So what if this spill is currently bigger than the Exxon Valdez? So the **** what?

    I'm not trying to be crass what I ask that. With the current estimate of oil being spilled, this spill is just now showing as a blip compared to other spills much larger, AND you never heard anything about those spills because a politician didn't need political will to make policy.

    Blow-outs happen all the ****ing time. All the ****ing time. Obviously this blow out was hosting a faulty BOP, and **** got spilled. When this thread started we were talking 5K barrels per day. Seriously that's nothing. 5K is nothing and you folks were crying like it was the end of the world. If this thread had started with either accurate numbers of a leveled response to the very low number of 5K, maybe my contributions would have been angled differently.

    So the left pissed it's pants over 5K per day, only to later realize it's over 10x that. Frankly I'm surprised the Left didn't commit mass suicide over the news.

    At least this time it's not America's fault. Valdez was a drunk American skipper, if I recall correctly. Deepwater was Europeam owned rig leased to a European company.
