~Editilla Scrowtullas~ Do we really need to address the propagandist horse shit inherent in this tact by Lisa Jackson? Well? As the Oil Gushes, and Obama Bullshits, and Thad Allen Bullshits, and NOAA Bullshits, and Hurricane Season begs to differ, do we really have the luxury of Time On Our Side? No we do not have that luxury. How many of you can actually spell 2-Butoxyethanol? Come on, don't look, try to spell it now, then look it up and tell me you understand the neural-toxicological aspects of such a chemical in the millions of gallons range. Somebody Smart come on here and tell me everything is OK!

Does the oil industry ever tell the truth?~Ellis Picket, GRN
~In the entire Gulf of Mexico there 3858 oil platforms that produce or move oil and gas to land-based facilities. There are 244 offshore drilling rigs. Currently only 38 are drilling, 40 are involved in workover operations (existing oil well maintenance) and 59 are “ready stacked” (available to go to work within a few weeks). Sixty-nine rigs are what is called “cold stacked”, they are in effect, “mothballed”, not ready to go to work without weeks or even months of preparation. They have no crew to drill a well and no provisions on board. It is an expensive undertaking to prepare the rig for a job. The administration moratorium only affects deepwater wells. Only 13% or 1 in 7 rigs are affected.
There are only 36 deepwater drilling rigs; 2 are drilling relief wells to kill the BP blowout. Four are doing workover operations. Seven are undergoing maintenance or inspection. This leaves 22 rigs actually affected by the moratorium that are waiting on the new federal regulations. So we have 50,000 jobs at stake based on 34 drilling rigs. That is difficult to believe.
