    Caution BREAKING: Offshore Oil Rig Explodes 20 Miles From New Orleans



    News organizations in Lousiana are reporting that three people were injured -- two badly burned -- in an oil rig explosion Wednesday.

    The news of the explosion arrives just hours after Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar announced that
    an offshore drilling ban would remain in place until 2020 in certain sections of the Gulf.

    From
    WGAL.com:
    The U.S. Coast Guard received a report at about 10:15 a.m. Central time, that three people were injured on the rig, which is roughly 20 miles south-southeast of New Orleans, Petty Officer Thomas Blue of the Coast Guard told the New Orleans Times-Picayune newspaper.
    There was no immediate status report on the condition of the rig, said Kenneth L. Padgett, director of Jefferson Parish emergency management, WDSU reported.

    Well its Dec 3 and no reports in the National News of massive oil leak, or any leak for that matter. Seems the story is not much for news.
    Since you oppose more drilling, does that mean you support drilling at the current rate, since that is not more?

    I honestly think we need to re-examine our current drilling efforts and scale back as necessary. I dont think we should stop altogether, but I think we need to be a little less ambitious and have more oversight of current operations. This last year is ample proof in that direction.

    What is needed is leadership that avoids the political Bovine Scatology and ignores Environmentally ill groups and shuts down the EPA's nonsense, and works to solve the energy problems using brains and logic that most in the groups I mentioned and Government lack but by 100%.

    We have technology that allows coal to be used to generate clean power.

    We have technology to build totally electric cars with sufficient range to handle about 95% or more of all our travel needs, but the costs are made too high for no most people to afford. Why?

    You had better wake your dumb ass up to the reality that man caused Global Warming is a HOAX being used to tax the living hell out of us for nothing.

    You are falling for lies that are going to lead to poverty in a scale never seen in this Nation, and that will lead to tragedy and death.

    There's some of that Bovine Scatology right now!

    The big scary government is making those cars cheaper for you, not more expensive. The reason electric cars cost that much is their batteries are extraordinarily expensive. I think you forgot which side your talking points are supposed to come from, us environmentalist types are the ones pushing those socialized (subsidized) electric hippie cars, remember?

    Electric cars are not economically competitive because they aren't economically competitive. Yet. We're working on it. It's YOUR side that's doing their best to stamp out efforts that would change this.

    You had better wake your dumb ass up to the reality that man caused Global Warming is a HOAX being used to tax the living hell out of us for nothing.

    Says the guy who just claimed there's a such thing as clean coal. What's that about hoaxes?

    And we still use airplanes, and still need electricity, and still make plastic bottles and tons of other plastic items which are made out of petroleum. You'd have us drinking out of wooden bowls, riding bicycles everywhere and livingin tee-pees then?
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
