I don't blame the enviromentalists - though there is evidence of enviormentalists taking part in oil pipeline bombings.
There was a whole book written about it - The name is "Saboteurs: Wiebo Ludwig's war against big oil ".
It's not an opinion I share but you can't so there isn't evidence.

There are certain extreme environmental groups that might do something like this. Earth Liberation Front has carried out bombings in the past, most notably in my mind the fire bombings of a number of Hummer dealerships in California a few years ago. I don't think that these oil rig explosions were carried out by a group like that. At least, I hope they weren't.
I would caution people not to fall into the trap of thinking that environmental groups are above doing anything that you would accuse any other corporation of doing. Most of them are just that, corporations. Their bottom line depends on environmental issues and "green" products in the same way that oil companies depend on petrochem.
