    Yes it does depend on the situation. I think that, if they have a history of rigs failures then they should do this study.

    I think the real answer is that Libs only love EISs when they can use them to stop development that they don't approve of.

    First we find out that booms to collect the oil for burning were nowhere to be found, despite a plan to use them in case of a spill that was written in 1994, now this. The Feds had to go to the boom manufacturer, who had only one available. They then had to beg other countries for some.

    This exemption granted last year is all on the Obama administration, so they can't blame it on Bush.
    i saw this as well. however, it was an impact study they were exempted from, NOT a disaster plan.

    i would wager that kind of exemption is not uncommon, although it should be. as for the booms, seems more than one president is responsible.

    So the blame for the response to BP's mess falls on the government? How convenient.

    Nah, just the blame on failing to enact the 1994 disaster plan.

    So you believe the government should clean up BPs mess?

    So who does the blame fall on? Who are you blaming for the response to BPs mess? Be upfront about it. Who are you blaming for not properly responding to the mess BP made?

    If you search my posts you will see I think it's BP's responsibility, but we need an all hands on deck approach, and that includes the FEDGOV having a plan to clean this mess since it was they who leased the area to BP and ultimatley are responsible for thier tenents mishaps....


    If one of my tenants puts up a hazzard and I don't see it, and someone gets hurt, guess who gets sued.
