I will do it it in caps so just maybe the point may come through.
THE MORATORIUM WAS ONLY FOR DEEP WATER EXPLORATORY RIGS. NOT PRODUCTION RIGS.
THE MAIN REASON FOR THE MORATORIUM WAS BECAUSE THE ENTIRE OIL INDUSTRIES EMERGENCY RESPONSE PLANS HAVE PROVEN TO BE FAILURES.
Say that about a hundred times into it gets into your thick skulls.
ALL the oil companies we allowed to drill because they told the U.S. Government that if a catastrophic blow out were to happen they would be able to contain all the oil with little to no damage and stop a leaking well.
THE DEEP WATER HORIZON PROVED THAT WITHOUT A SHADOW OF DOUBT.
So why would any sane person allow EXPLORATORY....I will write it again...EXPLORATORY, non oil producing wells to continue drilling in DEEP WATER if we know there is no way on God's green Earth...THAT THEY CAN CONTAIN IT OR STOP IT IF SOMETHING GO'S WRONG.
WHAT F-ING PART OF THAT DON'T YOU Conservatives get!
