    We don't know what the longterm effects of this spill will be, or where all the oil has gone. And, the drilling moratorium wasn't about ****ing shrimpers, it was about a deepwater well that didn't have a failsafe to shut the damn thing off in a worst case scenario. They've plugged this well, sure, but has the problem of shutting the damn things off before they vomit a hundred million gallons of oil into the gulf been solved?

    NO. It hasn't.

    Your posts are so damn stupid and full of errors, it's sad.

    If finding out to make deepwater drilling safer is the goal, then why does Obama's commission on deepwater drilling have more treehuggers than industry experts? Not a single petroleum engineer sits on that commission.

    But, oh yes, we couldn't re-start drilling, because all those shrimpers were out of work. Why, Obama said himself, that he was halting drilling, for our own good, so no more rig hands got killed.

    The gloom-n-doom just isn't working for the Leftists, this time.

    I've seen this post before, and it hasn't gotten any better by being rehashed.

    I consider myself pretty conservative and pretty environmental minded...I too was pretty critical of their operations and thought (and still do) that this is an environemntal nightmare. If what we were told is true (and what we saw on camera), then somewhere on the order of 72 THOUSAND barrels of oil a day went SOMEWHERE...now...maybe its just a big oil ball under the surface, or maybe the dispersant was much more effective than anyone dreamed...but it was certainly a nightmare.

    I object to the moratorium on drilling on LAND. I dont like that they force them to do deepwater drilling. And if they are going to deepwater drill then they OUGHT to ensure the same thing cant happen again before they commence with the licenses and deep water permits.

    I don't have a problem with drilling on land. I have a huge problem with deepwater drilling.

    And this isn't over, not by a long stretch. We have no idea what the effects of all of these chemicals in the gulf will be.

    Not to mention we don't know the full effects of that much dispersant being released into the water.

    The herring fishery off the coast of Alaska dies off four years after the Exxon spill.

    The effects of this won't be known for quite some time. If certain fish populations saw their offspring not hatch or mature, we could be talking about populations dying off in a few years instead of now.

    The nightmare isn't over. by any means. The immediate effects may be passing, but that doesn't mean we know the long-term effects.

    My wife is an author...its not her genre but I keep trying to get her to write a story about mutated creatures from the gulf coast, apocolyptic doomsday scenarios where people eat the mutated sea critters and mutate themselves, a giant rolling undersea ball of tar/oil that randomly causes damage to vessels, etc...

    How about that - Ornamental fish. Thank God the Gulf is still producing something of value.

    Or "Gulf seafood being served as rare delicacies at the birthday bash".
