You know, I appreciate the fact the Oil Companies generally play the Bull in a China Shop approach to the world and the pursuit of their raw
materials. Fair on that and why we have regulations to control it. Heck even such places as the Russian Federation and the other authorities around
the Caspian Sea regulate them half to death. As it should be for such a dangerous substance when released en masse into the environment.
However... The way you put that makes it sound like a sudden halt to ALL Oil related activity in that region would instantly end to die offs and mass
beachings. At the risk of sounding pro-oil..which hey, I DO happen to drive a vehicle that takes gas..so I am to a degree, they aren't the *ONLY*
problem out there. One of them? I'll buy that for $100.
I'll just buy a few other problems like Naval Sonar systems, Volcanism, Ocean Currents
and the existence of MASSIVE predators out there that may terrify our little friends occasionally. Everyone thought the Giant Squid a myth until the
first pieces of bodies washed ashore. Maybe there is a Megaldon out there somewhere too.... Who REALLY knows for sure?
The underlying point here being that however valid Oil is to look at for a part of the problem, lets not get scope locked for political reasons and
the fact Big Oil is 'The Cause" to hate. We may end up OVERLOOKING another cause or contributory effect that is far more directly responsible. That
would be a tragedy to miss.
