On Anniversary of Oil Disaster, Obama Pushing More Offshore Drilling

In contrast to sacred wells, we’ve also got oil wells. Apparently, it’s not enough to have two of the three oceans surrounding the US poisoned; we’ve got to go for all three. But wait! Maybe it’s only about the money. After all, it wasn’t just Hallliburton who “cleaned up” after the Deepwater Horizon explosion. Via a BP Oil stocks dump, Obama made $85 million from the Gulf Coast oil “spill.” Not a bad return on investment — if you value money more than clean water. If you have Vanguard funds, please consider divesting and place your money into companies that support life instead of Monsanto and milking the disasters they receive news of ahead of time. You can’t eat money; nor can you drink it.

On Anniversary of Oil Disaster, Obama Pushing More Offshore Drilling

Deepwater Horizon oil spillMonday marks the fifth anniversary of the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico that killed 11 people, unleashed the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history, and also killed hundreds of thousands of dolphins, birds and other wildlife. So have we learned our lesson about the dangers of offshore drilling? Apparently not.

The Obama administration is pushing for more drilling off America’s coasts, including in the Arctic and along the Atlantic Coast. Next week the administration will hold a hearing in Florida on the use of deafening seismic blasts to find and map oil off the Atlantic Coast. Seismic surveys use noise as loud as jet engines to map the ocean floor by blasting airguns nearly nonstop for days, weeks and even months on end.

The Center is organizing a rally in opposition to these seismic blasts, which could harm as many as 130,000 animals. Read more about our work to halt offshore drilling.
