As the workers tackle the cleanup, all wearing Hazmat gear, the oil and gas companies are busy bragging about how safe their operations are and complaining about all the unnecessary regulations.
Regulations that hurt the bottom line and impede job growth.
Each weekday evening during the CBS News there is a commercial from the Natural Gas Industry claiming that it is the major player in the energy and economic future of America.It claims that hydro-fracking is a “new” and ” safe” extraction process and that the industry is providing countless jobs and that natural gas is the next big,profitable energy wave.Meanwhile,the oil,gas and coal industries are all involved in creating one after the other environmental disaster.I guess that they figure they are creating jobs and putting people to work when folks have to go out and clean up oil spills,poisoned water wells,and coal slurry that pours into rivers.Thay are all a bunch of lieing schmucks.
I agree with everything in your response.
Thanks for your input.
The two largest energy companies in the world (BP and Exxon) can’t manage to avoid fouling their own nests (Exxon: Yellowstone River), but a brand-new startup (founded to provide legal liability protection) will be fine building a pipeline carrying oil as acidic as battery acid through an aquifer providing water to four states. How stupid are we?
Over the long term, all forms of collectivism depend upon plunder and require certain people to decide who gets what, when, and how.
Sam, you’re an idiot. This has nothing to do with the topic of oil cleanup.
Besides, your right wing troll statement is meaningless, WHO’S “collectivism”, and when “certain people” are democratically elected, doesn’t that pretty much DISPROVES you stupid “plunder” comment?
I don’t expect a reply, that would mean you’d have to think before you write sh&t.
I can think of a few related angles. Think about it.
The GOP wants you to think all these problems are caused by too much regulation, does that tell you where they stand in all this?
