So how's it going one year after the Deepwater Horizon disaster? There's no shortage of info on the topic in the media. But the media can get things wrong. So here are two veterans of the disaster in the Gulf of Mexico to tell it like it is.
Is the benefit of the extra oil we will get from deepwater drilling (half a year's worth of additional crude) worth the environmental risks of another major accident? The Obama administration has obviously decided yes.
The blowout accident is just one more in a seemingly endless string of environmental insults and injuries. Life on the bayou gets harder each year and a rich and unique heritage is slowly eroding away.
